Nigerian singer and songwriter Victor Adere, who is professionally known as Victor AD became a household name after the release of his hit single ‘Wetin We Gain’.
On his way to a show, the singer was recently attacked by robbers and some people were of the opinion that his song – ‘Wetin We Gain’ was the cause of the robbery as he emphasized on the need to make money in life and hence motivated the robbers to also search for money by any means.
The singer addressed the issue in his recent chat with Sunday Scoop and here is what he had to say
It was not something that I have been through before; that was my first time of being robbed. It wasn’t a palatable experience but I give God all the glory. It has nothing to do with my song. At the end of the day, everybody wants to make money. As long as we are here on earth, our main focus is to make money; after serving God. Nobody wants to be broke. Before I sang the song, armed robbers were in existence”
About the inspiration behind the song, Victor AD had this to say
“It was like a motivation to hustlers who have been working for a long time but have yet to make it big. It was also based on a personal experience; so it was more like a conversation between me and God. If you listen closely to the lyrics of the song, you will realize that I was just trying to motivate people
I never expected it to be this big so soon. I thought it would only be big in the southern part of the country because it was actually the first music video I’ve shot. I didn’t even do a lot of promotional activities for it before the song went viral. The song is actually my sixth single. Some of my earlier songs are Jowo, Body go tell you, Bigger You, among others”
