Odumodublvck Doubles Down, Says Song ‘MC Oluomo’ Is About Messi

Odumodublvck Doubles Down, Says Song ‘MC Oluomo’ Is Abou


Nigerian rapper Odumodublvck is making it clear that his song titled ‘MC Oluomo’ is not about the Lagos political figure, Musiliu Akinsanya, commonly known as MC Oluomo.

The rapper has insisted that the song is a tribute to footballer Lionel Messi, despite the confusion and controversy it stirred in Nigeria.

When Odumodublvck initially mentioned the song on social media, he received backlash and accusations of promoting MC Oluomo, who was alleged to have been involved in disruptive activities during the Nigerian presidential election in Lagos.

In a recent interview, Odumodublvck clarified that he wrote the song as an ode to Messi, emphasising that the controversial title was meant to generate interest.

He highlighted the positive attributes he associates with both Messi and MC Oluomo in the song.

“That track caused a problem in Nigeria. MC Oluomo is like one of the president's boys. He works for the president, our president Tinubu.

“He has been his guy from day one, organising stuff for him. But when it comes to politics, whether you are on the good side or bad side; whatever side. They just feel it’s a dirty game.”

Explaining further, Odumodublvck added, “MC Oluomo is seen as the king of the street in Lagos. He makes everything work.

“I remember making that song on the day after Messi won the World Cup because I’m a huge Messi fan. I made that song for Messi.

“You know how artistes are, Declan Rice is not about Declan Rice. This Messi guy has the spirit of MC Oluomo in him. He’s a ‘we are not going to lose; anyhow we will share the spoils’. And that was what the song was about.”

The rapper clarified that the controversial title was used to create intrigue and cause chaos online, which indeed generated a lot of attention for the song.

He maintained that the song is a heartfelt tribute to Messi and not an endorsement of MC Oluomo’s alleged actions.

“The song came out, I had the snippet of it, everybody was happy. But when the song was dropping, I was like how am I going to brand the song? MC Oluomo is known for causing chaos, so let me cause chaos. I tweeted ‘Where’s the MC Oluomo in you?’

“Everybody went mental. I’m like ‘Yup, that’s what I want’. And the streams kept on going. People were like ‘What’s wrong with this record, let me even listen to it’.

“At the end of the say, it’s a slapper. People still love it because I made the song with a genuine heart. I’m not out here hailing anybody’s misdeed or mischievous P.”
