Victony taps Asake for New Track “Stubborn”


The “Outlaw King”, Victony, has joined forces with Grammy-nominated artist, Asake, to deliver their latest track, ‘Stubborn’. 

This somber yet musing track serves as the first single from Victony’s highly anticipated summer 2024 album, also titled ‘Stubborn’. The song is a seamless culmination of the rich sounds of Afro-fusion that both Victony and Asake are known for. The two go back and forth on the song, trading ballads and showcasing their lyrical excellence. 

The accompanying music video captures scenes of Victony and Asake performing the song in a retrospective and captivating look at childhood and family.

In a statement about the collaboration, Victony remarked, “This single is more than just music; it’s an anthem that speaks to resilience and the power of doggedness. Working with Asake on ‘Stubborn’ was an exhilarating experience. Our shared passion for music and refusal to give up, despite challenges, is what truly shines through in this track.”

Best known for his global crossover hit ‘Soweto’ featuring Don Toliver and Rema, ‘Stubborn’ not only showcases Victony’s musical maturity and range as an artist, but also highlights his influential role in shaping this rising generation of African talent and contributing to the global ascent of Nigerian music.

With a recent sold-out show in Uganda and a rapidly growing international fanbase, Victony continues to soar as one of Africa’s brightest musical exports. His impact is evident, as the artist currently ranks as the third most streamed Nigerian artist on Spotify in 2024.
