Early life and careerEdit

Victony first came unto the scene when he traded rap verses with Ladipoe on his revival Sunday series. He made his debut with a mixtape on SoundCloud titled The Outlaw King, the reason he is still known as "The Outlaw King".[5]

The mixtape was followed by covers of international hit records like "Bodak Yellow" by Cardi B,[6] "Moonlight" by XXXTentacion,[7] and "On the Low" by Burna Boy.[8][9] Victony started off as a rapper but later switched and started releasing R&B, trap music, and Afropop records.[10][11] 2021 started with his record "Pray" gaining traction, a song that was released after he was in a car crash. He got his biggest break in October 2021 when he teamed up with Mayorkun on the song "Holy Father".[12] The song was number one on Apple Music Nigeria and peaked at number 3 on the Billboard Top Triller Global charts in December 2021.[13] He later collaborated with Grammy Award-winning producer Rexxie on an EP called Nataraja.[14][15]

Personal lifeEdit

He is currently a student of the Federal university of Technology Owerri (F.U.T.O).[16][17] On 21 April 2021, Victony was involved in a fatal car crash.[18] The crash claimed the life of one of his friends, Doyin,[19] and he needed surgery.[20][21]

Victony has remained in a wheelchair after the surgery,[22] but stood to perform for the first time alongside Davido and Mayorkun on 24 December 2021.[23][24][25]
