Victony revealed this in an interview with MTV Base, where he admitted that he isn’t great at acting but added that notwithstanding, he would have still given it a trial.

The singer told the interviewer; “I would have been acting if I wasn’t an artiste. I don’t know how to act though, but I can try.”

Speaking about his fashion sense, he revealed that it is inspired by his dad, as he used to watch the man dressing in old school while growing up and he adopted it.

“My look is basically a reflection of who I am; my background, my story, and my whole person,” Victony explained.

Rising Nigerian singer, Oladokun Abimbola Elijah, better known as Bayanni, has revealed that a prophet once told his mother that he was going to become a musician.

The ‘Ta Ta Ta’ crooner said that was the main reason his family did not stop him from going into music. He said the man of God who made the prophecy to his mum when he was a boy, advised her to support him when he eventually indicates interest.

The Mavin signee also claimed that he saw his boss, Don Jazzy four times in his vision before he got the record deal. According to the 26-year-old, he saw himself working with Don Jazzy in the studio and the vision eventually came true after he got signed by Mavin.

Bayanni said; “When I told my parents that I was going to do music fully, they didn’t object. They just said, ‘okay’. That was when my mum told me about something that happened when I was little.

“She said a prophet told her that there would be a time when I would tell her that I want to do music and she should support me. So, when I told her [I wanted to do music], she let me. She already knew that time would come.”
