Nigerian rapper ODUMODUBLVCK has dropped his highly anticipated single “Declan Rice,” the lead track ahead of his upcoming album “Eziokwu,” meaning “truth” in Igbo language. The song pays tribute to the West Ham captain and showcases the rapper’s resilient nature and hunger for success, both on the pitch and in the music industry.
“Declan Rice” follows ODUMODUBLVCK’s 2022 hit release “Picanto,” featuring Zlatan and Ecko Miles, which spent 12 weeks straight in the Top 50 of Nigeria’s TurnTable Top 100 chart and peaked at No. 1 on Apple Music Alternative Charts. As a result, expectations are high for “Eziokwu,” which is set to feature a string of hard-hitting raps and melodious anthems, showcasing ODUMODUBLVCK’s talents as a rapper and artist. The album is set to be a cohesive project that will serve as an introduction to Okporoko, the self-defined genre of hip-hop that takes influences from grime, Afrobeat, and progressive R&B.
ODUMODUBLVCK’s trajectory is on an upward trajectory, with co-signs from top music industry figures such as Skepta, Wizkid, Fireboy DML, and Rema. He is quickly becoming one of the hottest rap voices in Africa and is a true pioneer of Nigerian drill. His unique style and innovative approach to hip-hop make him a stand-out figure in the Nigerian music scene, and “Declan Rice” is another example of his exceptional abilities. Fans eagerly anticipate the release of “Eziokwu,” which is set to establish ODUMODUBLVCK as one of the most exciting young artists in hip-hop today.
