Odumodublvck made the revelation before his performance at a recent show in Abuja, where he started his music career.

The ‘Picanto’ crooner said making music for him has never been about the money, and he expressed joy that his choice yielded positive results.

According to the 29-year-old rapper, his name is now part of conversations and across Lagos, Abuja and other parts of Nigeria.

He said; “I will tell you this for free, I had some people, they offered me 200,000 dollars to join them, I said no. I took 10,000 first from Teezee, I declined 200 and took 10 to be with Teezee. It’s not about the money. Now we are here, we are in the conversation.”
