Spotlight: VICTOR AD A Breakout Artiste You Should Pay Attention To
Who be this Victor AD (Redeye) guy? Was the question I asked myself immediately his vocal kick started Erigga song Motivation and while I still wondering who he is, he dropped Wetin We Gain, then I had no option than to make him an artiste I must listen to.
Victor Adere better known a Victor AD is a fast rising artiste signed under Etins Record. He is a native of Delta State but was born and started his life in Lagos State. He was part of a music band in Delta State and also voted the best singer during his days at Auchi Federal Polytechnic.
He started his music career in 2014 with the single called Jowo and since then he has been steadily making a name for himself. The Afro Pop singer has a distinct vocal that you can’t help but love and his song writing skills is also something worth mentioning. His musical influences are Bob Marley Sunny Ade, Michael Jackson and Lucky Dube.
Like I said his first major announcement in the music industry was on the song with Erigga titled Motivation. With lines like “Pikin way dey find party rice no suppose dey fear dance”, “you way no know the way song take start you dey hurry to go dance” it is safe to say that Victor AD was the biggest star on that song. It was this song that probably got the attention of Etins Record as they signed him in a multimillion naira deal and then to announce himself-bigger, he dropped what is currently the biggest song on the street right now titled Wetin We Gain.
With lines like “the street na by grace no be who hustle pass dey carry first”, phone dey ring na family dey call if no be billing na something dey sup”, “if we no buy the Benz wetin we gain” this song became an instant hit on the street immediately it dropped and right now it is one of the most requested song on radio and the video which dropped few weeks after is also doing well but Victor AD isn’t done yet or make I talk say he is not slowing down just yet.
His latest effort is coming on a feature by DJ Epic titled Broke Boi and I just have to say after listening to this song, I’m confident Victor AD is here to stay as he is a star in the making. Just like Wetin We Gain, Victor AD went really hard on this one, as he delivered yet again another song that will be well received by the streets. Some of the lines from the song go does “omo I don tay for this game shey o mo age mi”, “hustle no know bosun small boy way dey use leg today fit do Benz tomorrow…,”
If he doesn’t get carried away with the fame and attention and just concentrate on his music, Victor AD will definitely make his mark in the industry as he is that artiste we all need to pay attention to.
