‘I Refused to Link Up With Davido In 2019’ – Odumodublvck

‘I Refused to Link Up With Davido In 2019’ – Odumodublvck 

Tochukwu Ojogwu, better known by his stage name Odumodublvck, is a Nigerian rapper who has revealed that he declined an offer from his team to collaborate with Afrobeats artist Davido.

In a recent interview with CTRL Room, the rapper said that, despite the wishes of his team, he declined to see Davido in 2019 in order to gain notoriety.

Rather, he claimed that he was drawn to UK grime artists whose style complemented his vision.

Odumodublvck said, “In 2019, someone [in my team] said we should go to Lagos and meet Davido. But I was like, ‘What will Davido do for me? Even if Davido takes me to America and puts me on stage and I’m rapping my stuff, his fans won’t understand because they are afrobeats fans.’

“But these guys: Teezee, BOJ, and Sholz—are the pipeline to the UK market. And those are the closest guys I sound like internationally. So why don’t I follow that route to get to wherever I want to get to?’

“I was like, I don’t need Davido for anything now. Let me follow people that align with my vision. And that was how we just came together, and we’re here now. Number one in the country against all odds. Tell them they’ve to respect that thing. Because we went for an award show, and we didn’t even have seats. They don’t respect hip-hop in Nigeria. They don’t respect us.”

The Declan Rice crooner went on to say that Nigerians do not appreciate hip-hop music or its artists.

According to Odumodublvck, throughout his difficult times as an artist, the organizers declined to provide him a seat at award ceremonies.

He, however, admitted that he conceded to Wizkid’s controversial statement that “hip-hop is dead”, stressing “I was tremendously happy about Wizkid’s statement… Hip-Hop was dead.”
