Odomodublvck Embraces Blaqbonez's Promotional Tactics Amidst Rapid Success of "Declan Rice"
Nigerian rapper Tochukwu Ojogwu, better known by his stage name Odomodublvck, has responded to recent discussions suggesting that he is imitating the promotional strategies of fellow Nigerian rapper Blaqbonez.
Odomodublvck, a NATIVE Records signee, has garnered significant attention with his newly released single, “Declan Rice,” named after the famous English footballer.

He tweeted in Pidgin English:
DEM SAY I DEY COPY BLAQBONEZ. WHY I NO GO COPY AM. SHEY THE THING WEY E DO NO WORK FOR AM? ON HOW HIM GO PISS I GO CARRY HIM ANSWER SHEET SEF. UNA NEVER SEE ANYTHING. DECLAN SPY.
Translated from Nigerian pidgin to English:
“They say I’m copying Blaqbonez. Why wouldn’t I copy him? Didn’t what he did work for him? In fact, I’ll take his answer sheet for every test. You haven’t seen anything yet. Declan Spy.”
Odomodublvck’s candid response to the criticisms highlights his determination to succeed in the music industry by employing effective marketing strategies, regardless of whether they resemble those of his contemporaries. With the early success of “Declan Rice,” it appears that Odomodublvck’s promotional efforts are paying off, and fans are eager to see what the rising star has in store for the future.
