Over three years after he signed on with Olamide’s Yahoo Boy No Laptop record label, Viktoh is still trying to churn out the hit that would make him widely acclaimed. This is despite the fact that Lil Kesh, who joined the label the same time with him, has several hit songs and album to his name already.
Lil Kesh’s success has also made many to insinuate that Olamide did not give Viktoh the same attention and push he gave the former while they were both still signed on with YBNL. It will be recalled that Lil Kesh formed his own label, YAGI, in April 2016, while Viktoh also left the label at about the same time.
However, Viktoh has dismissed the notion that Olamide did not give him the necessary push. In a chat with Sunday Scoop, he said, “What people need to realise is that I’m not working with anybody’s time. YBNL is one family and nobody is treated better than the other. As a matter of fact, I was the one who introduced Lil Kesh to Olamide, so I am very happy that his career is progressing. Mind you, my songs are also doing well out there and I don’t have any regret. I’m constantly working and my plan is to beat my past records. All these stories of envy between us are just the handiwork of mischievous people; we are very cool, and we will always be.”
Speaking on his alleged exit from the label, Viktoh said, “Right from when Olamide signed us, he made it clear that his intention was to build all his artistes to the point where they can stand on their own. And I think he has been able to do that. However, I am still very much a part of YBNL and I discuss with Olamide regularly. There is no bad blood between us and we still have a lot of things planned. I would be forever grateful to him for the opportunity he gave me. Olamide is a good person and he always wants the best for everybody around him.”
On how he gets inspiration for his songs, he said, “I approach music with a free mind. Most times, I would just go the studio and work with the beats that are made for me. I could get ideas for a song at anytime, and when I get to the studio, I would build up on it.”
