22-year-old, Idyl Diongoli has just emerged winner of The Voice Nigeria season 2 and there is a flurry of mixed reactions on Twitter over his victory. First thing to know about tonight’s results is this: we did not see it coming.
From the moment Jahtell and J’Dess were kicked off at the beginning of the show, viewers began to raise concerns on the reliability of the voting process. When it came down to the top two finalists and we were left with Team Timi’s Idyl and Team Patoranking’s Ebube, we kind of already knew who we’d rather have as winner.
Not that Idyl has not been amazing so far! He proved himself worthy with two beautiful performances tonight and at the end of the second one, we decided Idyl would be ‘ideal’ as winner; but that’s just us. Here’s what TwitterNG thinks of the season 2 star:
Idyl wasn’t the popular choice but we’ll manage him:
Is Idyl good, yes
Is Idyl better than Precious, no
Is he better than Jahtell, no
But congrats to him tho#thevoicenigeria

I'm sure it was Ebube that won. They just had to give Idyl after reading twitter. The auditor's hands were shaking #TheVoiceNigeria

Just so you know, the people of Bayelsa waged war on top of the matter:
In Bayelsa State we had voting centers where you walk in they give you airtight to vote for Idyl so don't be surprised #TheVoiceNigeria

I knew #TheVoiceNigeria is up to something ever since Idyl won the public vote from Precious and Bada. Crap
