Odumodublvck reveals why Super Eagles lost AFCON 2023 title to Ivory Coast


Nigerian rapper, Odumodublvck has offered his perspective on why the Super Eagles of Nigeria lost the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) title to Ivory Coast, attributing the outcome to fate rather than skill.

During his performance at a show that surfaced online today, Monday, April 1, 2024, the rapper shared his belief that Nigeria's defeat in the AFCON final was predestined, echoing the sentiment of 'Que Sera Sera' – whatever will be, will be. He emphasized that the universe did not align in favor of the Giants of Africa on that particular occasion.

Odumodublvck highlighted the role of Ivorian and Borussia Dortmund player, Sebastian Haller, who played a pivotal part in Ivory Coast's AFCON 2023 campaign. He noted that Haller's triumphant return to professional football following his battle with testicular cancer in 2022 added a significant narrative to the tournament.

Despite not playing a prominent role in the final match, Haller emerged as the hero for Ivory Coast by scoring the decisive goal, securing their third AFCON title at the expense of Nigeria. The rapper interpreted this outcome as a reflection of fate, suggesting that the universe orchestrated Ivory Coast's victory as a symbolic acknowledgment of Haller's resilience and triumph over adversity.

"The reason Nigeria lost the cup is because we were never meant to win it. There's a player called Sebastian Haller for Ivory Coast, he suffered testicular cancer, he played nothing in that match but he was the one that scored the winning goal," Odumodublvck stated, emphasizing the significance of Haller's story in the context of the tournament's outcome.

While the loss may have been disappointing for Nigerian football enthusiasts, Odumodublvck's perspective sheds light on the broader narrative of resilience and the unpredictable nature of sporting events.
