Nigerian rapper, Odumodublvck, has made it clear that despite being the social state of the country, he has no intention whatsoever to move to Lagos.
The Abuja based rapper disclosed this during an interview recently, stating that he finds difficulty moving from Abuja to Lagos due to the perceived insecurity in the state and the harmful effect it would take on his mental health.
Speaking on his decision to remain in Abuja, he maintained that he enjoyed the serenity of the city and appreciated the recognition that came with being there.
In Odumodublvck’s words, he said “
Let’s say a fish pond has 10 fishes in Lagos and there are a hundred fishermen; in Abuja, there are 10 fishes and there are five fishermen, if you are a fisherman, where would you go and cast your nets?
With the help of the internet, you can connect anybody. Now I’m in Lagos here na, I’m in Echoo Room na. I came from Abuja, I can go back tomorrow. It’s just funds.
I’ll come here but to stay here and dabble in that pond, is not safe. It’s not safe for my brand. It’s not safe for my mental space. It’s not safe for my bank accounts. Because, if Wizkid dey do show, before him call me, he go first call Joeboy, Blaqbonez, Fireboy, Oxlade, Buju, Omah Lay. I can keep going on and on, before they get to Odumodu.
But where we are in Abuja, if Skepta should come, if they don call three artists, dem no call me then dem never call any artist.”
