Tochukwu Ojogwu, Nigerian rapper, popularly known as Odumodublvck, has recounted his early struggles as an artiste.

In a post via X on Wednesday, the rapper revealed how he lost his dad because his family couldn’t afford a hospital bed space of N70,000.

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.

According to him, he was inspired by other rappers but no artiste paved the way for him.

He 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.”

Odumodublvck is known for his stage performances.

At the 2023 Headies, he won the Best Rap Single and Rookie of the Year awards.

He was also mentioned as one of Wizkid’s current favourite musicians.
