Nobody paved the way for Wizkid or Burna Boy – Odumodublvck counters Eedris

Famous rapper, Odumodublvck, has stated that contrary to comments by some entertainers, no artiste paved the way for Wizkid, Burna Boy or any Nigerian musician.

Odumodublvck said such a statement is an attempt to claim “God’s glory” because it was the will of the Almighty, hard work and determination of both Afrobeats artistes that took them to where they are today.

The ‘Declan Rice’ crooner took to his Twitter accout and opined that artistes can only inspire each other, but maintained that only God can pave the way to success.

He wrote: “Everybody dey claim pave the way. Everybody trynna claim God’s glory. None of you n*ggas paved the way for no one.

Nobody paved the way for Wizkid or Burna [Boy]. They hustled. All of us get our individual struggles and realities. Inspired? Yes. Paved the way? That’s God.

No human being in the history of music has paved the way for Odumodublvck. That’s God. So tomorrow make no OG come dey talk say e paved way for me, cause bros, you were not there when I was in the deng! So keep quiet sir.”

Odumodublvck’s remark is in response to 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.”
