Victor AD is thanking God for life after a close shave. While travelling with his crew to a concert in Benin City he was stopped by armed robbers who forced him to part with his belongings.
This incident happened on Friday, October 5, 2018, when he had just touched down at Shagamu from Lagos. The singer had opted for a road trip following the cancellation of his flight to Benin due to bad weather.

“I want to use this opportunity to say a very big thank you to God for the gift of life today, Yesterday I had a close shave with death.

“On my way around shagamu, robbers attacked us and this was very destabilizing. My personal effects were forcefully taken from me while some of my team members and I ran into the bush, I can still remember the robbers shouting “shoot anyone you see” they left with my hype man ( whose wife Just gave birth to twins) who pleaded for his life, he was forced to use POS machines to make transfers to the deadly squad.
“Above all my team and I are alive, and I am grateful to God for the grace of life!!! #prayforgracemagee”
