Nigerian rapper, Tochukwu Ojogwu also known as Odumodublvck has revealed that he likes budding Afrobeats singer, Seyi Vibez.
The Picanto crooner said he admires Seyi because he does not follow the trend or laid down rules in the Nigerian music industry.
He stated this through his official Twitter account while grouping himself and the ‘Bullion Van’ singer in the same up-and-coming category.
Odumodu stressed that people like them must do things different as that is the only way to ‘succeed in the jungle’.
He wrote; “What I Admire With Seyi Vibez Is That He Is Not Following The So Called Rules That Have Been Set By Gatekeepers And Naysayers.
We Wey Dey Come Up Must Do Things Different.
That’s The Only Way To Succeed In The Jungle. The Only Way.”
In other news, Nigerian Twitter Influencer, Daniel Regha has said music star, Ayo Balogun aka Wizkid started becoming less of a force after he took a jab at rappers.
It may be recalled that during an interview with 10 magazine, the “Essence” crooner said rap is dead while arguing in favour of Afrobeats dominating the Hip Hop genre.
According to the Starboy Entertainment founder, Hip Hop artistes mostly rap on the same beats, and they have similar styles.
Wizkid also took to social media and said Nigerian rappers are non-rappers who lack development and he went on to list South Africa’s Nasty C and Ghana’s Sarkodie as the ‘real rappers’ in Africa.
Subsequently, Wizkid received backlash mostly from Nigerian rap artistes who either responded to him online or released diss freestyles.
Months after the singer made these comments, Regha said he lost his star power due to the outcome of his utterance.
According to the social commentator, it also led to Wizzy’s More Love, Less Ego album turning out as a big failure.
He advised the Joro crooner to recant his statement, beg for forgiveness and make efforts to improve his behaviour.
Regha said; “Wizkid’s star power has seriously dropped after he mocked rappers; MLLE is no doubt a mid project, but this also led to the album being a big flop (compared to MIL). He needs to retract his words, beg for forgiveness & improve his behaviour. Humility goes a long way. No offense.”
