Victony discloses the one and only artist who inspires me.
Nigerian singer and songwriter, Anthony Ebuka Victor, better known as Victony has revealed that he has one source of musical inspiration.
The ‘Holy Father‘ hitmaker stated that his only musical inspiration is award-winning Afrobeats musician Davido.
On the 10th of June 2023, Victony made this known via his official Twitter account while also sending a shoutout to the DMW boss.

This comes after Victony stated that he will not allow anyone to exploit him after a social media user implied that Wizkid affected his style.
The tweep known as Toheeb Showemimo had quoted a video of Victony dressed like Wizkid and wrote; “He’ll come out one day and say “wizkid is not the source of my inspiration”
The Soweto crooner responded by questioning why someone would assume he is imitating the Joro crooner just based on appearance.
He added that he appreciates those who came before him but would not lower himself for them, explaining that he works so hard in his career to support his family.
The performer also expressed his gratitude to Davido for providing him the chance to play at the O2 Arena.
Victony wrote; “I put so much efforts on my craft just to make sure I can feed home, i respect all the OGs but will never stoop so low to allow anybody take advantage of me, Big shout to Davido for bringing me out at the O2 Arena it meant alot to me.❤️🤞
