Budding rapper, Tochukwu Ojogwu, known by his stage name, Odumodublvck, has revealed that his father died due to the family’s inability to raise N70,000.

Odumodublvck made the revelation through his Twitter handle on Wednesday while recounting his days as an up-and-coming artiste.

He said that his dad was sick, and they took him to the hospital but because his family was poor, they were unable to afford N70,000 needed to pay for bed space.

The Hip Hop artiste revealed that they had to take him home to die. He said said his rough experience in life is the reason he strongly believes no artiste paved the way for his musical success.

Though the ‘Declan Rice’ he admitted that he was inspired by other rappers, he insisted that no musician paved the way for him.

Odumodublvck wrote: “When my father died my family was poor. We could not pay hospital bed space of 70k [N70,000]. We had to take him home.

Coming to tell me about paving the way for me? That’s God, brother. No use your ego counter reason my reality, bros. I agree say you inspire me. But bros, you pave the way for nobody. Nobody! I hate when n*ggas try to play God.”

His statement comes on the heels of Eedris Abdulkareem’s claim that he laid the foundation for Afrobeats stars, Davido, Burna Boy and Wizkid to become successful in the music industry.

He said his 2004 rebellion against concert promoters’ mistreatment of Nigerian entertainers, during which his historic fight with 50 Cent occurred, was the driving force behind the revolution that brought international recognition and acceptance.

Eedris added that his revolt which negatively affected his career, “was a beautiful sacrifice that gave birth to Burna Boy, Wizkid, Davido” and other stars.

The rapper said; “You heard someone like Burna Boy said nobody helped him in Nigeria. Would you have been a star without some people starting the revolution? That is a stvpid talk. You wouldn’t have been where you are if we didn’t make this industry what it is; if we didn’t fight for it. Unfortunately, most of them don’t appreciate it. And I don’t give a dime.

“It [fighting for Nigerian music industry] affected my career but it was a beautiful sacrifice that gave birth to Davido, Boy, Wizkid, and everybody today. For me, what’s more important is that I have done what God asked me to do and our music is now allover the world. I have opened the road for them. It’s their responsibility to appreciate the fight. And if them don’t, I don’t give a dime.”
