Tochukwu Ojogwu, Nigerian rapper, popularly known as Odumodublvck, has disclosed his dream of becoming the Wizkid of rap in Nigeria.

Odumodublvck said while he possesses the ability to deliver core hip-hop akin to American star Eminem, he has deliberately chosen not to.

According to him, Nigerians simply don’t understand hip-hop.

The rapper said he wants to make Nigerian rap “exciting” much like how Wizkid revolutionized R&B in Nigeria.

He spoke in a recent podcast interview.

He said: “Some Nigerians did pure rap but they didn’t make it exciting for people to gravitate towards it.
“People said my rap sounds like nursery school rhymes. I dumbed it down so I can sell these records, so you don’t have to think twice. When you listen to my rap, if you understand the lingo you get it once. You don’t have to go to any dictionary.

“It’s not hard core rap. It’s easy. I’ve made it exciting. Just like Wizkid, I want to make my rap sweet and exciting. I can rap like Eminem and all these guys but bro where I come from nobody is gonna listen to that stuff. They don’t understand it.”

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.
