I was in coma for 4 days – Singer, Victony recounts near-death accident

Nigerian singer, Anthony Victor, aka Victony, has disclosed that he was in coma for three to four days after he was involved in an auto crash in 2021.

Recall that Victony in 2021 narrowly escaped death in a ghastly car accident that left one dead and three injured. The accident kept him on wheelchair for about a year.

Recounting the tragic experience in the latest episode of the Tea with Tay audiovisual podcast, the ‘Soweto’ crooner said he remembered leaving the club.

He said, “Just leaving the club, on our way back, I slept off. I was tired. That was like my first time outside up to that time. So, I slept off.

“When I woke up, I was in the hospital with my dad. I was like ‘what’s happening?’. Because my parents didn’t know I was in Lagos. So, I was like ‘why is my dad here?’ And he told me I was out for like 3 or 4 days.”

He said when he came back from coma, he was told that another car hit their vehicle from the back.

“I heard that the impact was from the back like another car hit us. The driver and the other guy at the front they were totally fine. We were two at the back, two at the front. So, the one beside me [at the back] he died while I broke my legs,” Victony recalled.
