Victor Thompson, Gospel artist known for his famous track “This Year,” has recounted how he used to be a weed, & alcohol vendor to sex workers.

Victor described his everyday challenges, including working multiple jobs to make ends meet.

According to him, at daytime, he sold sachet water on the streets, and at night time, he ran a small shop near a brothel, selling booze, marijuana, and cigarettes to sex workers.

In his words:

“At a time, I was selling alcohol, weed, cigarettes, and hawking pure water. In the morning and afternoon time, I did vulcanizing, shoe-making and hawked pure water but at night go back to my shop which was close to a brothel to sell alcohol, weed, and cigarettes. Most of my customers were the prostitutes.

“I lost my parents when I was between 12 and 14. My dad passed first, I think I was 10 or thereabout. When my dad died, my aunties threw us out of our dad’s house. We didn’t have a place to sleep. God so good, a carpenter was so kind and gave us an empty land to sleep. It’s a bush so at night, I would sneak my mum in, so that was how we lived for years. But she couldn’t cope then she passed.”
