I want to be ‘Wizkid’ of rap – Odumodublvck

Budding Hip Hop artiste, Tochukwu “Odumodublvck” Ojogwu has stated that he wants to make Nigerian rap exciting just like Afrobeats superstar, Wizkid did with R&B in the country.

He made the statement while having a podcast chat, where he revealed that he can do core rap like America’s Eminem but chose not to because Nigerians ‘don’t understand’ hip-hop.

Odumodublvck claims, Nigerians only listen to melodic music so he “dumbed down” his rap in orde to make his records become commercially successful.

The ‘Declan Rice’ crooner said; “Some Nigerians did pure rap but they didn’t make it exciting for people to gravitate towards it. People said my rap sounds like nursery school rhymes.

I dumbed it down so I can sell these records, so you don’t have to think twice. When you listen to my rap, if you understand the lingo you get it once.

You don’t have to go to any dictionary. It’s not hard core rap. It’s easy. I’ve made it exciting. Just like Wizkid, I want to make my rap sweet and exciting.

I can rap like Eminem and all these guys but bro where I come from nobody is gonna listen to that stuff. They don’t understand it.”
