Nigerian hip-hop singer and rapper, Tochukwu Ojogwu, better known as Odumodublvck, has declared his aspiration to become the reincarnation of iconic American rappers, DMX and 2Pac of African music industry.
Odumodublvck insinuated that he doesn’t want to be seen solely as a “Nigerian artist” but rather aims to be recognized as a global superstar.
The singer made this declaration immediately after signing a significant career-altering contract with the renowned American multinational record label, Def Jam Recordings, based in the United States.
This new deal showcases his determination to achieve widespread recognition and make a lasting impact on the international music stage.
“Back home in Nigeria, you have artists that are really stigmatised for using our cultural language. I don’t want them [foreigners] to say, ‘he’s Nigerian and he’s just Nigerian [artist].’
“I want to be like the reincarnated DMX…If DMX and 2Pac were from Africa.”
