It is a good thing when Zimbabweans achieve such successes which should be celebrated and even more so as it is a break from all the issues facing the nation. Eric has a unique voice and some people may not be convinced that he is Idol material but you can be the judge of that.
26 year old Zimbabwean Eric Moyo from
won the MNET East and Southern Africa Idols contest at the weekend (July 27th) and walked away with a USD$80,000 cash prize and a recoding deal with Sony BMG worth US$25,000. His song choice at the finale was ‘When a Man Loves a Woman’ during which he chocked up with tears when he spotted his parents in the crowd for the first time this season. Next up for Eric is a trip to Bulawayo to record his first single “This Is My Everything” and soon after start work on his album. South Africa
