Niel Murillo will be part of ABS-CBN’s new boy band.
Garnering a whopping 98.63% of public votes, “Kanto Boy Next Door ng Cebu” Niel Murillo became the first winner of the talent contest Pinoy Boyband Superstar. This means that he was the first to acquire a spot on the five-person boy band that the TV network is producing.
The 17-year-old Cebuano, who performed the song “Cold Water,” also won one million pesos.
He bested six other finalists namely Ford Valencia, Joao Constancia, Mark Oblea, Russell Reyes, Tony Labrusca, and Tristan Ramirez.
The voting for the next four members of the boy band continues in the talent contest which airs on Saturdays after Home Sweetie Home and Sundays after Goin’ Bulilit.
