HE sang his way to an US$80,000 recording contract using other people’s music and now record bosses fear M-Net Idols (East and South Africa) winner Eric Moyo’s original work is “not good enough”.

Reports from South Africa say the 27-year-old is struggling to put an album together with Sony-BMG bosses getting impatient almost a year after his big win.

Moyo has submitted plenty of material to the record company, but most of it has been regrettably sent back to him marked “not good enough”.

His mother, Rosely, denied her son’s work was of poor quality but admitted problems with some record company executives.

She said: “He has been trying to talk to the guys in order to finalise the recording, but I understand that at one time the manager refused to even talk to him.”

She said when Eric won Idols, they had been told he would be going into the studio immediately after the competition, “but it was quite some time before they called him just to get his details.”

Eric beat competition to the big prize with renditions of Percy Sledge’s When a Man Loves a Woman and Brian MacKnight’s Back At One.

No comment was immediately available from Sony-BMG.
