Superstar footballer Declan Rice, a West Ham player, has expressed his admiration for Nigerian musician Odumodublvck, who made a song dedicated to him. Rice had recently shared a video of himself grooving to the music by Odumodublvck online.
Speaking about his friendship with the Hip Hop artist, he said that Nigerians had shown him a ton of love thanks to the music called “Declan Rice” in his honor. Declan believes it has received over 15 million streams, and he and his boys constantly listen to the song in the car.
The English midfielder claimed that ‘Declan Rice’ stunned him as soon as it was released and that it went to number one in Nigeria as the quickest streaming song to do so by a relatively unknown act ever. According to him, the song reached number one, and he finds it touching that people are constantly screaming his name in the clubs and leaving kind comments in his comment box on social media.
“Among all the white boys that came to club, there was a West Ham fan. And he listened to the song [titled ‘Declan Rice’] . He said ‘This is crazy’. And he made a video vibing to the song and sent it to the West Ham fan page. “He is friends with the person that controls the West Ham fan page. The person immediately sent it to Declan Rice. I posted it and Declan Rice was like ‘fire, fire, fire, fire, fire’. “Right now, me and him [Declan Rice] we are friends. He’s texting me like ‘Omo’ he has to come to Nigeria, even if it’s two days; the next time I’m performing he has to be on stage with me.”
