Nigerian singer and songwriter, Anthony Ebuka Victor, better known as Victony has revealed that he has one source of music inspiration.
The ‘Holy Father’ hit-maker said his only inspiration in the music industry is award-winning Afrobeats singer, David Adeleke aka Davido.
Victony made this known via his official Twitter account while also sending a shoutout to the Omo Baba Olowo.
He also alluded to Davido’s performance at the closing ceremony of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, saying that the DMW boss motivates him to want to perform at the FIFA World Cup someday.
The artiste wrote; “My only inspiration in the industry ❤️🐐”
“I’m motivated I’ll love to perform for FIFA World Cup one day.. drop #Davidoworldcup”

This comes after Victony said that he will not allow anybody exploit him, when a social media user insinuated that Wizkid influenced 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””
In reaction, the Soweto crooner wondered why someone would think he is copying the Joro crooner simply because of an outfit.
He said that he put in so much effort into his career so that he can take care of his family, adding that he respects the ones who came before him, but he would not stoop low for them.
The artiste also thanked Davido for giving him the opportunity to perform 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.❤️🤞
