Tochukwu Ojogwu, popularly known as Odumodublvck, an Abuja-based hip- hop musician, underscores that in spite of being Nigeria’s diversion capital, he finds it challenging to consider moving to Lagos.
Odumodublvck uncovered this during an appearance on Quincy Jonze’s Echoo Room webcast.
His essential inspiration for settling on this choice is the city’s apparent absence of security and the expected adverse consequence on his psychological well-being.
Instead, he expresses a preference for relocating to Abuja, a city known for its relaxed and tranquil atmosphere, where he is well-known.
In his words;
“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.”
