Popular Nigerian rapper Tochukwu Ojogwu, better known as Odumodublvck, has recounted how he was hospitalized and almost lost his life a few days before his fame.
Odumodublvck made the revelation while speaking on the latest episode of popular singer Joeboy’s Body & Soul podcast.
The rapper disclosed that he almost died following an accident that led to major surgery, with about 16 stitches in his mouth.
Despite the challenges, Odumodublvck expressed that his life took a turn for the better when Grammy-winning artist Wizkid shared his song “Picanto” on social media. Coincidentally, it was also the day he was discharged from the hospital.
Recalling that morning, Odumodublvck mentioned waking up to numerous messages, including one from Wizkid, and feeling that God had spared him for a purpose.
In his words,
“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.”
