With birth always comes death; that will never change and is something we need to live with, says musician Vikta Juice Boy. This is the message he wants to bring across through his latest album ‘Itashipu’
Vita Juice Boy, real name Victor Tunombili Moses, told VIBEZ ‘Itashipu’ is a project close to his heart as it was done in remembrance of his brother who passed away aged 17, hence the name and the number of songs - 17.
“Honestly speaking, this album means a lot to me. Itashipu was my mother’s other child and he meant the world to me,” expressed the witty and humorous performer.
He said his music has always had a fusion of soul, adding that it is not difficult to channel emotions through music. “I put my whole heart in it – my mind, my all; had to do it for the broskie (brother). I just wanted to make him proud. I dearly hope wherever he is, he is smiling right now.”
He urged people to not be consumed with death and be robbed of the present, as we only live once.
“I hope this album gives you hope and strength to learn how to live through the pain of losing a loved one and that it gets better. I want you to celebrate life like never before,” urged Vikta Juice Boy. This is his second album released on 2 October 2022. It features several collaborations with various musicians including Ethnix, KP Illest, Tesh, TopCheri, TK the Rapper, Shaiyah, ML, Cota Mati, Michael Pulse, Tuko Lavaduro and Indodaeyabhunguka (SA).
ML, who is featured on the 14th track titled ‘Everyday’, said working with Vikta Juice Boy was a delight and she was excited to see his work come to light.
