In the year 2014, Victor started off his music career professionally. This he did when he released his first official single “Jowo” but sadly, the song wasn’t given much recognition. But this didn’t weigh him down as he continued to release more music’s until he finally came to limelight after being featured on Erigga’s single “Motivation”, a song which he did nothing else but sing the chorus and he did it perfectly.
On releasing his own single, “Wetin We Gain”, the music instantly became a hit as it was on the lips of almost every Nigerian. It became more like a street anthem and he was immediately signed by Etins Records, a record label based in Ghana.
