VICTONY: Why I Switched From Rap To Afrobeats


Exciting Nigerian artist lyricist, Anthony Ebuka Victor, otherwise called Victony, has uncovered that he changed his music type from hip-bounce to afrobeats in light of the fact that he needed to “have a go at a new thing.”

Victony expressed this during a meeting with Nelson CJ on Youngster Vogue, covered by Africa’s New Wave.

The 22-year-old said the pandemic quarantine offered him the chance to find himself.

He said,

“The aura, the feeling during lockdown was very different, and that prompted me to want to try something new,” the ‘Soweto’ crooner recalled.

“But when I got into the Afrobeat space, I realized that it was even harder because a key element of Afrobeat is relatability. [But you have to do that] and still make sense. You still have to be metaphoric, you still have to be creative with the writing,” he added.

Victony said music assisted him with mending quicker when he was in a wheelchair for about a year after a deadly fender bender that killed one of his companions.

He said the positive gathering his coordinated effort with Mayorkun, ‘Sacred Dad’, got while he was still in a wheelchair, roused him to wrap up his undertaking and follow up the achievement.

He, in any case, said the culpability over not having the memorable option how the mishap happened still torment him, adding that “I simply feel like perhaps things would have been unique assuming I was conscious.”
