We earlier reported a Facebook user identified as Emmanuel King had suggested that Victor AD’s song, Wetin We Gain contributes to the high rate of ritual killings in the country. Many Nigerians reacted to the statement and recently, the artiste had something to say about his hit single.
In a recent interview, Victor reacted to the claim that his song promotes ritual killings and the lyrics suggest a fast money lifestyle that many young boys are latching on to. Stating the positive aspect, he revealed that since people had such reviews about his lyrics, it has made the song more popular and helped sky rocket his career.
He however stated that he had no intention of driving such a message as the the song was just a conversation between him and God who he was asking to better his situation as he has been through a lot in life.
“To an extent I felt bad but again due to the fact that I have been through a lot, I will say this one is just a tip of the iceberg compared to what I have been through based on the street that I grew on. I have struggled and waited to be where I am today, so when I hear people say all those things I just shrug it off as one of those things people will do to get your attention. They are even making me more popular. People now want to hear the song that is making people want to go into rituals killings and all that”, he said.
Victor also stamped on the claims that his song perpetuates evil. “The thing is either ways people get inspired any way they want. This same song that they say is inspiring people negatively has also inspired people positively because I got a text from a woman who said the song renewed her husband’s hope of securing a job after a long time. That’s a positive vibe. You won’t say because Kanayo O. Kanayo inspired people to go into rituals because he used to act ritual movies. People just do what they want to, he said.
Speaking on the success of the song he stated: “I never thought it will go this far. It wasn’t a strategy for me to blow. It was just a conversation between me and God. If you listen to the song you would see so much pain in it. Even with all the sufferings, my parents and younger ones still pressurize me to pay some bills as the first son that I’m. The song was also about how I came to Lagos with the mindset that once I come to Lagos everything will be fine, how I slept under Obalende bridge for three days just to make sure I met marketers and yet nothing came out of it”,
Meanwhile, things are looking up for Nigerian musician Kizz daniel who recently purchased a Bentley said to have cost N48 million.
