Nigerian rapper Odumodublvck, whose real name is Tochukwu Ojogwu, has disclosed that his relationship suffers due to his football fixation. The rapper recently discussed who he believes to be the best football players in history: Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. In a recent interview with BBC Radio 1Xtra, Odumodu was asked to select Ronaldo and Messi. Without much deliberation, he went with the Argentina star. He claimed that the Inter Miami forward is a ray of hope because he made multiple attempts to win a World Cup with his nation before succeeding in 2022.
“Messi or Ronaldo? Messi. I’m a Messi fan. I had to put that out. King of football. Cleared everybody’s doubts – and he won the World Cup. After losing five or four finals with Argentina. That’s a symbol of hope, a symbol of determination. Don’t give up.
“I’m 30 years old. A lot of artists blew up when they were 20/21. I know how far I’ve come to get here. It took me seven years to get to this point, so when I look at Messi I draw inspiration. That’s why he’s the greatest.
“Shoutout to Ronaldo cos hard work, Ronaldo is that guy too. And there’s no problem if someone is better than you at something. That’s my message to Ronaldo.”
He says his intense love for the sport causes issues for every woman he has encountered. The “Eziokwu” crooner emphasized that he loves football even more than music and said that the ladies couldn’t understand. Given that he never pursued a football career, the Headies Award winner declared that any child he had in the future had to play the game. A football player “must” be his future offspring, he said.
On his X handle, Odumodublvck wrote,
“Any girl I meet has a problem with my passion for football. They cannot understand it. How will someone like a game so much?
“It’s unbelievable. I love football more than music. As I no play, my pikin must play. Amen.”
ANY GIRL I MEET HAS A PROBLEM WITH MY PASSION FOR FOOTBALL.
THEY CANNOT UNDERSTAND IT.
HOW WILL SOMEONE LIKE A GAME SO MUCH.
I LOVE FOOTBALL MORE THAN MUSIC.
AS I NO PLAY. MY PIKIN MUST PLAY. AMEN
