Odumodu made the statement during a recent interview on the latest episode of London’s 90 podcasts. He said most times when he points out the obvious about Nigeria, people caution him not to demarket his country, but the truth is that Nigeria “is a bad place.”

He said: “Nigeria is f*cked. I tell people, they say, ‘You know it’s your country; don’t speak about it like that.’ Nigeria is a bad place. The reason why me and Teezee are here is because we made it out of the jungle.”
