My father died because we couldn’t pay N70,000 for hospital bed space – Odumodublvck

Nigerian rapper, Tochukwu Ojogwu (popularly known as Odumodublvck) has recounted his days as a struggling artist and how he lost his dad because his family couldn’t afford a hospital bed space of N70,000.

He said his family was poor then and had to take his dad home to die.

The ‘Declan Rice’ crooner said his rough experience is the reason he strongly believed no artist paved the way for his musical success.

He said he admitted that he was inspired by other rappers but no artist paved the way for him.

On his X handle on Wednesday, Odumodublvck 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.”

His outburst is coming days after veteran singer, Eedris Abdulkareem, claimed in a podcast interview that he paved the way for Wizkid, Burna Boy, Davido and the current generation of Nigerian artists.
