Nigerian rapper, singer and songwriter, Victony has released a new version of his hit single “Soweto (with Don Toliver, Rema & Tempoe)”. Listen to it here! In this infectious track, the three power houses come together to confess their love to their leading lady.
Of teaming up with Don Toliver and Rema, Victony shared, “Soweto is such a special track for me so it was very exciting to team up with Don Toliver and Rema for the remix. I can’t wait for all my fans to hear the new track!”
The original “Soweto” track is a beautiful collaboration between Victony and multi-platinum, diamond certified producer Tempoe (who has also worked with CKay, Omah Lay and Jason Derulo), which has amassed over 110 million streams to date. Victony also released a stunning music video for the track in October 2022, directed by Jyde Ajala, which has gained over 35 million views. “Soweto” is featured on his EP titled Outlaw, and was included on Rolling Stone’s top Afropop songs of 2022 list. On TikTok, the song has over 1 million streams and over 1 billion views across all videos.
The remix comes on the heels of Victony’s debut EP release, Outlaw, from May 2022. The EP currently has over 300 million streams. The project release was a remarkable comeback for Victony given the near-death tragedy he experienced; in April 2021, Victony was involved in a car accident that almost claimed his legs and had him in a wheelchair for months. Victony managed to overcome this unthinkable setback, and released several widely acclaimed singles later that year including “Pray“, and the Mayorkun collab “Holy Father.” To date, Victony has over 110 million Apple Music streams, 54 million YouTube Music streams, 115 million Spotify streams with 3 million monthly listeners.
Stay tuned for more for more music to come from Victony later this year.
