Budding Nigerian rapper, Tochukwu Ojogwu, known professionally as Odumodublvck, has recounted how he had a surgery that could have prevented him from becoming successful.
He said God saved him and used Afrobeats superstar, Ayodeji ‘Wizkid’ Balogun to send a message to him that he would be a star.
The ‘Declan Rice’ crooner stated this on the latest episode of the Body & Soul podcast hosted by singer, Joeboy.
Odumodublvck said he was just discharged from hospital after a major surgery in 2022 when friends started calling to inform him that Wizkid promoted his song ‘Picanto’ which featured Zlatan Ibile.
According to him, that singular act of Wizkid sharing his song on social media was the sign God used to tell him that he would be successful.
Odumodublvck said; “You can hear the way I’m talking? It’s not because of these [teeth] grills, it’s because I did one operation [surgery]. I almost died but God kept me here right now. And the fact that God saved me, everything that was happening after that was not surprising.
“Ask my guys, I was eating baby food for two weeks. Apart from that, there were like sixteen stitches in my mouth, bro. The day Wizkid posted my stuff was the day I was being discharged from hospital.
“I woke up in the morning, I saw a message at 7 am, I saw Machala…And I checked my Instagram, everybody was sending me that Wizkid posted ‘Picanto’. And that was like, the first thing that God used to tell me that, yo, I’m with you, everything that is going to be happening from here onwards, it’s going to be more than what eyes have seen, ears have heard.”
