Season 6 Idols runner-up, Lloyd Cele returns to the show this week. This time, the former Contestant becomes the mentor and passes on his knowledge to this year’s hopefuls.
Lloyd says he is very grateful for the entire Idols experience last year. “Idols has opened so many doors for me that I have lost count. The most important thing I have found is that, the decision of what you do with every opportunity given, is entirely up to you.”
As a former Contestant, he has been through the mill and back. What advice could he impart to those in the running this year? “Stay humble! Your humility will take you further then where your talent can take you!”
Lloyd still watches the show and we know this because of his comments over Twitter during the broadcast. Yes, Lloyd, we are watching you, too! “I love watching the Idols show and fans always ask me what do I think, so I engage with them and give my honest opinion.” He says he also prides himself in replying to each and every tweet he receives from his fans.
After seven months of intense work, Lloyd has launched his second album. Aptly entitled No Limits, it is Lloyd’s pride and joy. “I have written 90% of the material on the album. I called it No Limits because I wanted to send a message that nothing can stop you from achieving your dreams. There are no boundaries and limitations to prevent you from becoming the great person that you have been destined to be.” The track “Hero” has already hit the top spot on a few local radio charts.
