Is YBNL’s Viktoh The Rejected Star Of The label?

In terms of hits churned out by artistes, YBNL
may well be one of the foremost record labels in
the country at the moment.
Many of its signees are currently topping charts.

As a matter of fact, it would be safe to say that
when YBNL sneezes, the whole music industry
catches cold; a case in reference is the Headies
saga of January 2016 when Olamide practically
shut down the event when his protégé, Lil Kesh,
lost out on the Next Rated category of the

An avid
would note
that Viktoh
doesn't have a respectable hit to his name.

Meanwhile, Lil Kesh who he introduced to his
label boss, Olamide, is already regarded as a
heavyweight of sorts in the industry.
Some of Viktoh's songs which failed to attract
mainstream attention include 'Skibbii That,'
'Instagram Police,' 'Say Them Say' among others.

However, some people have attributed Viktoh's
slow career growth to Olamide. According to this
school of thought, Olamide doesn't give Viktoh

new YBNL princess, Temmie Ovwasa.

Speaking on the condition of anonymity, the
source opined, "To be sincere with you, Olamide
is a very liberal boss who is after the success of
all his artistes. But if you consider the way
Olamide is always shouting the name of Lil Kesh,
Adekunle Gold and Temmie in his songs and
Instagram posts, you will realize it seems he
doesn't give the same attention to Viktoh.
Though Viktoh should also up his game in terms
of the kind of songs he puts out, YBNL should also
pay more attention to him."

Meanwhile, another artiste that isn't getting the
desired attention in YBNL is Chinco Ekun, but
sources claim that his education is what is taking
the front burner in his life right now, and that's
why he's not so visible on the music scene.

With Lil Kesh and Adekunle Gold hinting that
they would soon be floating their own record
labels, perhaps, Viktoh's 'condition' will improve.
Remember, former YBNL signee, Zino also
complained of neglect. It should be noted that Lil
Kesh has left YBNL but he is still under their
