Nigeria’s freshest music star Victor AD has teamed up with Huncho Vibes, Peruzzi in a new hit dubbed WET. The song has been produced by Oshow Beatz.
The new kid on the block on the African music scene had previously done a single ‘Prayer Request’ featuring Patoranking which has given him a seat in the continent’s music industry.
The fast-rising music sensation started singing at the age of six looking up to music legends like Bob Marley, Sunny Ade, Michael Jackson, and Lucky Dube.
In 2014 he released his single ‘Jowo’ which introduced him to the music scene. Before his breakthrough into the industry, he was a leader of a music band in the Delta State, Nigeria.
In 2018, the singer released another single ‘Wetn We gain’ which was discovered by a talent management company Longitude Promotions giving him a major breakthrough.
The single with over nine million views on youtube got him a record deal and he got signed by SJW entertainment and under the label, he released a couple of other singles like ‘Tire You’ ‘Too Much Money’ and Red Eye EP.
Prior to “Wetin We Gain”, Victor AD was not only a struggling artist; he was also struggling in life. Victor’s life started off in the ghettos of Kirikiri and Ajangbadi. He would eventually move to Warri, complete his tertiary education in Auchi, and return to Warri where he became the lead singer of a local band.
By Victor’s own admission, he had applied for countless talent contests, all of which had turned him down, and had released a number of songs, all of which had fallen flat.
Victor was growing frustrated by this stagnation. The singer claims that “Wetin We Gain” was actually a conversation between him and God about his music career, and that the first time he performed the song, the lyrics moved him to tears.
