The eagerly-awaited announcement of the second featured artist from Nigeria is chart-topping rising star Victony. He first stepped onto the scene with his Soundcloud mixtape The Outlaw King. With origins in producing rap music, he has since moved to a versatile mix of Afrobeats, RnB, Trap, and Afropop sounds. Victony’s breakout track that got him on the radar was his 2021 collaboration with Mayorkun, Holy Father. His most recent release kolomental has also seen huge worldwide popularity, with over two million Spotify streams to date.

For his COLORS performance Victony shares his vibrant and inspiring new single, Many Man. The hit track comes off the back of his previous EP, Outlaw EP, which had listeners in anticipation for his next project. In response to his feature for the collaboration, Victony said, “I’m grateful for the support from COLORS x Spotify, and I’m more than excited to be a part of the new generation that’s pushing the African sound beyond borders. We’ve only just begun.”

Spotify aims to forge connections between fans and artists, while supporting unique African artists who drive the culture and are headed for the global stage. Through collaborations with platforms like COLORS that share this goal and through supportive initiatives like RADAR Africa, Spotify hopes to continue celebrating and promoting emerging African talent.

Spotify’s RADAR Africa and COLORSxSTUDIOS first kicked off their partnership by featuring Nigerian singer Ayra Starr. With two exciting artists so far, the partnership is not yet over – fans can expect more to follow. In the meantime, listeners can check out Victony’s performance on the COLORS website, as well as on Spotify’s RADAR Africa playlist.
