“Why Tems and Ayra Starr have achieved more than Wizkid, Burna Boy and Fela” – Odumodublvck reveals (Video)

Nigerian rapper Odumodublvck has caused a stir online as he compared fast-rising Nigerian female singers, Tems and Ayra Starr to music stars, Fela, Burna Boy and Fela.

In an interview with the host of ‘Cocktails & Takeaways” podcast, he stated that Tems abd Ayra Starr have done more for Afrobeat than Wizkid, Burna Boy and late legendary Afrobeat pioneer, Fela Kuti.

He explained that unlike the male artiste, who get easier access in the industry, female artistes are been subjected to sever sexual offers and despite it all, Ayra Starr and Tems still make good music. He noted how the hardest job in the world is being a woman.

“When I was coming to London, I was on the same flight with Tems’ manager, Don Awon. I told Tems, ‘Big up, you did it. What you and Ayra Starr have done is bigger than anything Wizkid, Burna Boy and even Fela have done. Quote me anywhere.

“Because as a female artiste, out of every 10 show promoters, 5 want to have sex with you, out of every 10 producers, 5 want to have sex with you, out of every 10 artists that you look up to and need help from them, 5 want to have sex with you.

I can’t imagine being in that situation. And after dodging all those things, you still make good music. Remember, the number one hardest job in this world is being a woman.

The second hardest job is being an artiste because there are over 100 million artistes. How are you going to make it out of the thousands of songs that drop every day? Why should they listen to your own?

“It’s not like you’re doing a job that your payment is guaranteed. As an artiste, there’s no guaranteed payment, you’ve to make it for people to pay you. It took me about six years to get my first good cheque. So imagine being a babe and an artiste and you still make it. That’s impressive.”

Not many understood his statement and at such, tackled him.

One Topstar Photography wrote, “Omo I keep realizing that a lot of Nigerians don’t comprehend at all and it’s disgusting. He said as a female artist, it’s more difficult to succeed in the industry how else can we explain this to u guys”.

Months back, Odumodublvck stated that no one paved the way for him in the industry as he defended Burna Boy against Eedris Abdulkareem, who slammed him for him crediting anyone for paving the way for him. Odumodublvck made it known that no human being in the history of music has paved the way for him and it has only been God, and added that no one should credit themselves in the future for paving the way for him.

His statement didn’t sit well with Jaywon, who considered it madness, and he trashed his song. Odumodublvck had clapped back, mocking him as he stated that this was the reason Ayra Starr rejected his hands to avoid him saying he paved the way for her in the future.
