Q : What is the inspiration behind RED EYE THE EP?
Ans: REDEYE the EP is a true story. It tells the truth about the scars I have sustained and the
struggles I have been through.. “I might appear ugly on the outside but trust me I am very pretty
Red Eye the EP tells a story of Victor AD, a young man who is not perfect, who has made mistakes
several times. An aspiring guy trying to make a good name for himself like everyone else.
The irony of the whole matter is that we have all made more mistakes while trying to correct the
existing mistake. I am someone who grace has brought far. but still, have had to grind my whole life
for the good days to come ”
I want the world to learn from my story as someone who has been cheated on time and again but
who is now trying to be strong.
“Red Eye the EP is dedicated and made for all the ghetto kids out there.. I say to them ” let all the
scars and the struggle you’ve been through motivate you” Have no fear.
