WHO IS VICTONY?
Victony; Victony is an 18 year old boy from Imo state who is basically trying to influence the world with his sound and lyrics.
Victony; (laughs) you just sounded like my mum but anyway, music is a language spoken differently by several musicians so yeah I use music to convey my thought, feelings and fears to people that understand my own language, I am referring to my core fans worldwide.
NATURALLY YOUR SOUND IS NOT NIGERIAN HOW DO YOU COPE, WHATS YOUR DRIVE?
Victony; well every serious musician knows what he or she wants and the kind of musician they would like to be so taking me as an example, I strive everyday to ensure my voice is heard at every corner of the earth and to influence people’s life positively so not until that has been achieved will I stop doing music.
HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN IN THE INDUSTRY?
Victony; Jesus, can I still remember? Started music since like God knows when, it’s been quite a while but I guess I started professionally during my secondary school days.
WITH THIS MUCH TIME SPENT IN THE INDUSTRY, HOW MANY SONGS HAVE YOU RELEASED AND WHATS YOUR FAN BASE LIKE?
Victony; well, I thank God, atleast I can boast of thousands of fans that stream my music all around the world. I just have 3 songs release but over a million unreleased.
WHAT ARE YOUR GREATEST MOMMENTS IN THE INDUSTRY
Victony; every moment while doing music is great but talking of my greatest moment would be when I get acknowledged by celebrities in the industry and also when I get mass recognition through my social media handles.

WE WENT THROUGH YOUR FAN PAGE ON FACEBOOK AND NOTICED YOU HAVE HAD QUITE A RECOGNITION FROM SEVERAL ARTISTES IN THE INDUSTRY, HOW DOES THAT MAKE YOU FEEL AND WOULD THAT MEAN WE WOULD SEEING YOU REPRESENTING A RECORD LABEL ANYTIME SOON?
Victony; (smiles), the clarity moments makes me feel happy and gives me some sort of accomplishment but that doesn’t really mean I am getting signed soon or anything it only means when I get grind a little harder then the limelight is mine.
IF YOU WERE GIVEN A CHOICE, WHAT RECORD LABEL WOULD IT BE?
Victony; there are lots of good record labels in the country but I believe God knows what’s best for me.
WHAT WOULD YOU CLASSIFY AS YOUR WORST MOMEMT?
Victony; worst moments (laughs), I would say it’s when I get stuck while others make progress whilst still in the same industry but then they are just necessary phases.
TELL US ABOUT THE “HEARTBREAK SONG” IS IT IN ANYWAY CONNECTED TO YOUR RELATIONSHIP LIFE?
Victony; (smiles), “heartbreak song”, (laughs), it definitely has a story behind it but it’s not necessarily mine, all I did was basically character impersonation of a heartbroken person, the content of the song displays voicing the thoughts of a heartbroken person who tries to escape by living reckless instead.

I BET YOU HAD ALOT OF FEMALE FANS WHO COULD RELATE TO THIS, HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH THEM?
Victony; (smiles), definitely they were alot, and it’s fun when you know you are actually being heard and understood outside.
SO, SCHOOL AND MUSIC, THAT DOESNT REALLY GO WELL LOOKING AT THE FACT THEY ARE TOO DEMANDING, HOW DO YOU SURVIVE?
Victony; (laughs), my brother , you feel my stress, DAMN!!, That’s one hell of a problem but like I said it’s been God, I have always had my way around and manage to give both equal attention.
HOW WAS IT LIKE INTRODUCING MUSIC TO YOUR PARENTS WHILST STILL IN SCHOOL?
Victony;(smiles), nah it wasn’t really that hard to say, they were partly in support but always insisted I graduate before pursuing the music career properly, but unfortunately time waits for no man and at my age it’s definitely my prime and i need to get it while I am still young.
HOW’S YOUR DECEMBER GOING TO BE?
Victony; well I have a couple of shows I would be performing live so if you wanna see your favourite boy on stage, come let’s have fun.
SEEMS LIKE THIS DECEMBER WILL BE TAUNT FOR YOU AND YOUR FANS, BUT IN THE MEAN TIME ARE YOU WORKING ON ANY PROJECT TO ROUND UP THE YEAR?
