Reportedly, Darius Danesh is on the verge of signing a GBP1 million record deal, in which it states that he’ll produce three LPs.
If you’re thinking Simon Cowell’s offering him the above-mentioned, then you’re wrong. The contract is with Mercury Records and not Simon’s BMG.
It had been thought Darius, who came in as the second runner-up in the hit ‘Pop Idol’, would follow Will Young and Gareth Gates in signing up with Simon too.
A spokesman for Darius’s management team told the press “Darius was flattered by all the offers and is hoping to make an announcement within the coming week or two.”
When Darius was a contestant on ‘Popstars’, Darius claimed he would have a number one single and a platinum album by the time he was 35. Well, looks like it may actually come true.
Hearing him sing on the ‘Pop Idol – The Big Band Album’, I think he has an awful load of potential to unleash. Coupled with his excellent singing abilities and strong vocals, I reckon that he’ll go far and not be an one-hit wonder.
