Anthony Victor, also known as Victony, is a Nigerian singer, songwriter, and rapper born on January 5, 2001. Broken and Sing My Song are two of his most popular songs.

In May 2022, he released Apollo and his debut studio album, Outlaw.
Victony was born on January 5, 2001, in southwest Nigeria, to Mr. and Mrs. Anthony. He comes from a middle-class family, so as a child, he did not have access to the good things in life. Victony became interested in music after being influenced by artists such as Falz, Davido, Wizkid, MI Abaga, and Olamide. Victony had a wonderful voice, so he began preparing himself by recording verses, which later helped him become a successful young Nigerian artist.
Victony released his first single, “Ina The Benz,” after several practices and a lot of melodies. Because the song was his first appearance in the Nigerian music industry, he was unable to generate enough listeners.
