Declan Rice, a midfielder for England and West Ham, responded to a song by popular Nigerian rapper Odumodublvck that used Rice’s name as the song’s title. Declan posted a video of himself grooving while listening to the new music on his Instagram page. The viral clip was shared a few days after the rapper from Abuja had Wizkid repost one of his songs and Davido, the 30BG boss, follow him on Instagram.
Odumodublvck himself, who had viewed the football star’s video, had reacted to this. He responded to the thoughtful act with a string of media tweets that also assisted in promoting the recently released smash track.
WE UP. 🇳🇬 x 🇬🇧

Amongst the media posted by the rapper is a screenshot of his private chat with Declan, who enquired when he’d be visiting London, stating he couldn’t wait to meet him in person. Before the song’s release, Odumo had shared a detailed tale of how he first got Rice’s attention through another close foreign friend who, through Instagram, made the link-up happen. The rapper had also sent the song while it was unreleased to the footballer, who gushed over it.
Over a week after the song’s official release, Declan Rice still strongly supports “Declan Rice.” This must feel like a full-circle moment for the footballer.
