How Olamide Inspired My Debut Album ‘Stubborn’ – Victony

Victony credits rapper Olamide with inspiring him to create his upcoming album, ‘Stubborn’.

The singer discussed meeting Olamide at a listening party for his upcoming record, set to be released on June 28.

The ‘Soweto’ hitmaker said that the YBNL label’s CEO encouraged him to make ‘Stubborn’ an album.

Victony claimed the rapper, affectionately known as Baddo, told him he needs to release an album “when the fans are yearning for it”.

He stated that Olamide’s support influenced his choice to release ‘Stubborn’ as an album rather than an extended play, as previously announced.

“Stubborn was supposed to be an EP. I felt like I was not album-ready,” Victony said.

“Before the release of the single ‘Stubborn’, I went to Baddo’s house to seek advice like my big brother.

“The meeting had a different outcome. I went there with my guys, just discussing with Baddo. He told me, ‘Look, you do not want to put out a body of work when your fans are no longer yearning for it.’

“That hit me because I feel like I am a project artiste and that is how people understand me best. I thought about it and I am like, ‘Why not? What is holding me back?’ And then I tweeted a picture with Baddo.

“That very day was the day we decided to make this an album. I had announced Stubborn as my next project but as an EP.”

Victony, born Anthony Victor, gained popularity after teaming with Mayorkun on ‘Holy Father’ a few years back.

He is signed to Mainland Block Party, a musical label run by Nigerian music executive Tobi Mohammed.

In May, Victony released ‘Stubborn’, a tune off their debut album.

Victony’s 14-track CD includes Asake, Shallipopi, Shorae Moore, Saint Jhn, and Teezo Touchdown.
