X Factor singing sensation, Eoghan Quigg, is rumoured to have been dropped from his label, RMC, and bookies are already betting on who will snap up the young superstar.
Apparently the reason that RMC gave for releasing the young Dungiven man was because of poor sales of his debut album, self entitled ‘Eoghan Quigg’.
Paddy Power has also included a number of the giants in the music business as possible takers of the local X-Factor finalist.
Universal are 3/1, Warner Bros. Records are 4/1 and Syco Records/Sony BMG are 10/1, also in the running is ex Westlife band member Brian McFaddens Label BMF at 9/4, Daniel O’Donnell’s, Rosette Records further down the betting at 12/1 and at 50/1 Michael Jackson’s fathers new label is the outsider.
Patrick Tohill, spokesperson for Paddy Power’ said; ‘This news has come as quite a surprise to us all at Paddy Power because I’m sure that everyone of us bought his record over the Christmas/New Year period either as a secret addition to our own collection or as a present for a daughter or little sister.
I have no doubt that he’ll get snapped up nice and quickly by another label and get a new even better album out on the shelves in time for the Autumn.’
Paddy Power is also betting on Eoghan’s future success where he is 3/1 with the Bookie to have an Irish No.1 Albumn in 2010.
