The tweet caused mixed reactions, with some praising his devotion to Skepta and others dismissing it as delusional. Odumodublvck has idolized Skepta for years, and for him, wearing Skepta’s chain is a major achievement. The rapper rose to fame in 2022 with his single “Picanto” and has become popular in the Nigerian rap industry. Despite the divided opinions, Odumodublvck’s commitment to Skepta demonstrates his passion for the music industry.
Okporoko rhymes pioneer and Native Records signee, “Odumodublvck” is currently receiving criticism from netizens due to his recent revelation on Twitter.
In a tweet on Tuesday, the rapper, originally known as Tochukwu Gbubemi Ojogwu, stated that he would prefer Skepta’s necklace over winning a Grammy.
His tweet has caused a stir on the social media platform, with mixed reactions in the comments section.
Odumodublvck wrote about his achievements since gaining fame, expressing excitement and stating that he cannot even put into words how he feels.
It is evident that the Enugu-born rapper and songwriter is thrilled at the idea of wearing Skepta’s chain. In his own words, “ODUMODU. SKEPTAS CHAIN IS ON YOUR NECK”. His full statement reads:
“MOST TIMES I DECIDE NOT TO THINK ABOUT MY ACHIEVEMENTS BUT SOMETIMES I JUST GOTTA PAUSE AND THINK.”
“ODUMODU. SKEPTAS CHAIN IS ON YOUR NECK”
“I CANNOT EVEN QUANTIFY THE FEELING SO THEREFORE I CANNOT REALLY EXPRESS WHAT IT MEANS.”
“BUT FOR CONTEXT. IF YOU GIVE ME A GRAMMY OR SKEPTAS CHAIN.”
“I WILL TAKE THE CHAIN. CALL ME CRAZY BUT THATS MY REALITY.”
Odumodublvck has always idolized Skepta, a British-Nigerian grime MC, rapper, and record producer who gained popularity after releasing his debut album “Greatest Hits” on September 17, 2007.
Odumodu is not the only rapper who looks up to Skepta. Many upcoming and underground rappers, especially in Nigeria, see him as a god, an elite, and a role model in the rap industry.
Wearing Skepta’s chain is considered a significant achievement in Native’s musical career.

Interestingly, JustPorlee believes that wearing Skepta’s chain might even lead to Odumodublvck winning a Grammy in the future, stating, “Big kala make I yarn you bro as you carry the chain, Skepta go still give you Grammy bro …. The two shall be your one day….”
This shows the divided opinions of fans and reveals that not all social media followers are actual fans.
