Odumodublvck says it is time for change in the NFF after Victor Osimhen's remarkable tirade against former Super Eagles boss Finidi George on Instagram.

Nigerian rapper Odumodublvck has thrown his weight behind star striker Victor Osimhen's outrage over the alleged comments made by recently resigned Super Eagles coach Finidi George.

The roots of Osimhen's anger lie in claims that Finidi, who stepped down two months after his appointment, reportedly said he wouldn't beg the striker to play for the national team.

This came after Osimhen's absence from Nigeria's 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying matches against South Africa and Benin Republic due to injury.

A visibly enraged Osimhen did not hold back, tearing into Finidi as he recounted their past interactions following the latter's resignation.

Now, rap sensation Odumodublvck has added his voice to the matter, stating on Twitter that it is a new era for the Super Eagles.

"The fact that the captain who took us to the Nations Cup final is not with the team tells you a lot," he posted on Twitter.

"Ekong was fit. Fully fit. But una oga, Finidi, left him out. Told Osimhen not to come. If that's not disrespectful, then I do not know what it is?" the rapper said.

Odumodublvck expressed his unwavering support for Osimhen's decision to be outraged, adding that:

"So much goes on in the NFF and it's things like this that will shake up those at the helm of power. They have hidden their rot for a long time under the guise of respect. It's a new era."

The rapper's scathing remarks have added further fuel to the ongoing controversy, with many fans and experts eagerly awaiting the next developments in this high-profile dispute within the Super Eagles camp.
