Victor Khojane, better known as Dr Victor or Dr Vic, is a reggae and rhythm'n'blues musician, who was born in Kimberley South Africa.


Early years

Dr Victor Dr Victor Respect Music

Khojane began playing when he was a student, in a band called "CC Beat", mainly influenced by afropoop stars such as Blondie and Papa, Harare Mambo Band and Jonathan Butler, as well as some afroamerican acts (mainly the Jackson Five). In 1984 CC Beat began playing night clubs in Johannesburg; at the time, they managed to sign with label CCP Records (an affiliate of EMI), but the contract was later dismissed. Another label, Dephon Records, put them under contract shortly thereafter. CC Beat changed their name to "Taxi" and sessioned for Lucky Dube and other bands.

In 1991 the band changed label again, signing for independent label CSR. They recorded their first album, an Eddy Grant tribute entitled The Rasta Rebels. This work was highly successful, to the point that they decided to change the name of the band to "Rasta Rebels". At about the same time, Khojane adopted the pseudonym "Dr Victor".

Dr Victor then recorded a few solo albums, such as Badayo, Hello Afrika, and One Goal, One Wish. All these works were quite successful in South Africa, and Dr Victor was invited to open for international stars such as Paul Simon, Gloria Estefan and Janet Jackson. In 1997 Dr Victor's album Faya was his first work to get international attention, selling well in France, Mexico, Japan and the Middle East.

At the end of the 1990s Dr Victor reunited the Rasta Rebels, and a collection, The Best of the Rasta Rebels with one unreleased track, I Love to Truck, was released. Both the collection and the new song, published as a single, sold well. In the following years Dr Victor has alternated solo productions (such as Sunshine Daze in 2003 and If You Wanna Be Happy in 2004) and Rasta Rebels albums (e.g., When Somebody Loves You Back, 2006).
