Tochukwu Ojogwu, widely known as Odumodublvck, a popular Nigerian rapper, recently recounted an incident from the early stages of his career when he received a bottle of beer as payment for a performance.
This revelation came during his appearance on the Zero Conditions podcast, hosted by Motolani and Melody.
He said, “I once was performed for a bottle of Hero beer. Me and Reeplay went to the show. We went in his black Amera car. He sold the car for N120,000. The car knocked on the road. When he came back, the car was bashed so we sold it for scrap.
“The bottles of beer that were given to us weren’t even the planned payment. The owner gave it to us out of his generosity and also because he said our performance was great. This happened in 2017.”
Even in 2018, Odumodublvck admitted to wearing second-hand clothes, known locally as “Okrika,” for his shows.
It is worth noting that Odumodublvck gained recognition after his viral hit song, ‘Declan Rice,’ captivated social media audiences.
In a noteworthy move, Arsenal, an English Premier League club, used his song to announce their record-breaking signing of Declan Rice from West Ham for a staggering fee of £105 million.
