United States of America returnee, Victor Essiet popularly referred to as Mandator in the music industry has been receiving blessing from royal fathers presumably to ward off any unforeseen situation that may want to hinder his novelties.
Penultimate week, the reggae music icon visited His Royal Highness Rilwan Akiolu, the Oba of Lagos to get his blessing. According to further information, he is also billed to perform in his home state, Akwa Ibom as part of the line up activities for him this yuletide. Notable artists slated for the Akwa Ibom show include, Charles Oputa,a.k.a, Charly Boy, the Rosie sensational, Blackky, Righteousman etc
However, his on-going visits to Obas and royal palaces are also part of the agenda in his visit to his home state as he is scheduled to visit some of the royal fathers there. It will also avail him the opportunity to re-launch himself into the hearts of his die-hard fans that he left some 13 years ago.
After 13 years of his sojourn abroad, the Rat Race Apartheid's crooner, Victor returned home last November with his 12-man band led by the American super model/singer popularly called bashirrah.
In his speech, the Oba of Lagos, Akiolu endorsed the international artist who has taken his music across the shores of the country, as one of the country's musician whom he has had course to fraternise with before he became a king.
'Mandator's many works are songs that I have been listening to right from the 80s even till date, his sudden disappearance from the scene created some holes in my heart but now that he's home, I think we should all join hands together and make his homecoming a joyful one' Oba Akiolu confessed.
