Two years after entering the reality show, Kyle has a gold selling single, a MAMA’s nomination, and an album on the way. Chatting to The Juice about his success after the show, he says it’s all because of his team.
“We’ve got a talented group of people that we’re working with and I think that’s been a real help getting the music out. Of course after shows like this you have to have quality music for people to stand up and listen to and we were able to deliver on that.”
Kyle says the success of the single stems from it’s relatability. “I think people fell in love with the whole concept and the notion, and us as artists. Our friendship inspired them to reminisce on their childhoods. There’s just a connection with the song and friendship, and personalities, and memories, and all of that sort of that stuff that people are unconsciously tapping into. And I think that’s why it’s just an infectious feel good song.”
The song has also been nominated for an MTV African Music Award in the Best Pop/Alternative category. “Hopefully we take it this time,” Kyle says about the major nomination.
He may have achieved a lot in the past two years but the singer says owning a Mustang, travelling, and becoming a dad are three things he would like to do before he dies.
“I really would like to own an old-school Mustang. I would like to travel a hell of a lot. I’d really like to go see Barcelona and Spain. I think, to have a baby boy, that would be on my bucket list. I would love to be a father to a son.”
