Rapper Odumodublvck is facing criticism after revealing on Twitter that he would choose Skepta’s necklace over a Grammy win. The Enugu-born rapper expressed excitement at the idea of wearing Skepta’s chain, stating that it would mean more to him than a Grammy. Odumodublvck has long idolized Skepta and sees wearing his chain as a major achievement in his career. The tweet has sparked mixed reactions, with some praising him and others calling him delusional. Despite the divided opinions, Odumodublvck has risen to fame in the Nigerian music industry with his hit tracks and captivating stage performances.
Okporoko rhymes pioneer and Native Records signee, “Odumodublvck,” is currently facing criticism from netizens for a recent revelation he made on Twitter.
In a tweet on Tuesday, the rapper, originally known as Tochukwu Gbubemi Ojogwu, shared that he would choose Skepta’s necklace over winning a Grammy.
His tweet has sparked mixed reactions on the social media platform, causing a heated discussion in the comments section.
Odumodublvck wrote a “eulogy” about his achievements since his rise to stardom, expressing his excitement and stating that he cannot even describe the feeling. It is evident that the Enugu-born rapper and songwriter is thrilled at the idea of wearing Skepta’s chain. His complete text 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 long been an admirer of Skepta, a British-Nigerian grime MC, rapper, and record producer who gained popularity with his debut album, “Greatest Hits,” in 2007.
Odumodu is not the only rapper who looks up to Skepta in this league. Many upcoming and underground rappers in Nigeria consider him a god, an elite, and a role model in the rap industry.
Wearing Skepta’s chain is a significant achievement for Native in his musical career.
However, after his tweet, netizens have shared their opinions. While some praise him, others believe his claims are delusional. Beni even went as far as calling him a “Dirty Liar!”
Another fan, Emmanuel, agrees with him, saying, “You’re right. Because you might not even win a Grammy.”
Charlie from Warri empathizes with Odumodublvck’s sentiment, stating, “When you value something so much, I know the feeling.”
Interestingly, JustPorlee believes that wearing Skepta’s chain might eventually lead to a Grammy award for him. He wrote:
“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 demonstrates the divided opinions of fans and reveals that not all social media followers are actually fans.
It should be noted that Odumodublvck rose to fame in 2022 after releasing his first single under Native Records, “Picanto,” featuring ECko Miles and Zlatan.
Since then, the rapper has gained a strong following among hip hop music lovers in Nigeria and beyond, becoming a rap sensation in the Afro music industry with the release of several hit tracks, including “Declan Rice” among others.
His captivating stage performances and ability to blend genres have helped him establish himself quickly.
He is known for publicly wearing the traditional red and white Igbo hat, catching the attention of many music experts and professionals across the country, including Davido, the CEO and founder of Davido Music Worldwide (DMW).
