    Victony’s professional musical career began in 2017, and he was a rapper at the time. He made his debut with a SoundCloud mixtape named “The Outlaw King,” which is why some of his admirers still refer to him by that moniker.

    His breakthrough year was 2021 when his album “Pray” began to gather traction since it was released following a tragic fatal accident that claimed the life of his friend and confined him to a wheelchair.
