Victor Ekpo aka SirVic has lived in Port Harcourt studios since 2003 when he started out as a singer, switching to rap after some years. Back then, he had some songs out like ‘Make it Shine’ and ‘Some times’. In 2013, he had 2 more songs out, featuring legendary worship leader Afy Douglas in one.
Welcome to 2021 and Sir Vic is back and brutal. He has released “Take Over”, an E-P with 4 super songs, this time featuring PH-based vocalist, Obinna txyhieu and ‘God no go shame us’ crooner Prinx Emmanuel.
Prinx Emmanuel doubled as producer for the E-P, which in itself features different cool styles of music.
‘Jesus Hold Me’ is modest tempo Pop, a favourite of foreign gospel music enthusiasts. There is a blend of R&B singing by Obinna and the characteristic calm rap vibe of SirVic.
‘Joyful’ and ‘Get Your Praise On’ represent the faster urban gospel tracks in the mini-album.
‘E no de’, featuring the jolly Prinx Emmanuel takes the work to a climax for African music aficionados. The blend of Ghanaian hi-life and Nigerian Afro sprinkled with some Caribbean spice takes the mid-tempo music to easy club trouble – notwithstanding its unforgiving gospel lyrics.
In all, the E-P is both a radio and live-event favorite as OAPs and DJs who have listened attest to. It is currently streaming through the Audiomack link; DOWNLOAD TAKEOVER BY SIRVIC FT. PRINX EMMANUEL

The Ikot Abasi-born son of Akwa Ibom state, Sir Vic is out to ‘Take Over’ in a hurry. It’s his time, having labored in the trenches for close to 20 years unheard and he is not taking it easy
