I get inspiration from sermons –Sir Vic



A gospel singer and rapper, Victor Ekpo, aka Sir Vic, has said that he usually gets inspiration for his songs from sermons.

He told Sunday Scoop, “I get my inspiration from the sermons I listen to and the Holy Bible. The style of my rap and my tone are unique. You would likely never meet another African gospel singer that sounds like I do.”

Speaking on his reason for choosing music, the singer said, “It is my natural talent. I have been singing since I was little. I remember I sold my phones several times to raise money to pay producers for instrumentals I liked even when I never got to use those beats. I can do anything for music.

“I am a practising Christian and devoted church guy. My parents gave me that background and as I grew, I switched from singing secular music to fully gospel. Like I said in my song, E No Dey, I speak the truth and that’s why people hear me.

“Some like to call me a pastor but I’m not. I just draw inspiration from the deep thoughts and wisdom that can be found in Christian scriptures.”

The Akwa Ibom-born singer also stated that he was ‘in a hurry to publish these songs having been in the trenches for years unheard’.
