My father died due to lack of money to pay for hospital bedspace- Odumodublvck recounts


Nigerian rapper Tochukwu Ojogwu, better known by his stage name Odumodublvck, has shared tales of his early career as a struggling artist, including the time he lost his father due to his family’s inability to pay N70,000 for a hospital bed.

He claimed that because of their poverty at the time, they had to bring his father home to die.

The vocalist of “Declan Rice” expressed his strong belief that no musician paved the route for his musical achievement because of his difficult experience.

Although no artist had opened the path for him, he acknowledged that other rappers had inspired him.

On his X handle on Wednesday, 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 outburst is coming days after veteran singer, Eedris Abdulkareem, claimed in a podcast interview that he paved the way for Wizkid, Burna Boy, Davido and the current generation of Nigerian artists.
