Sodiq Yusuf, the Nigerian rapper better known as CDQ, has been hospitalised.


The musician disclosed this in a post via his Snapchat account.

In the post, he was seen receiving treatment at the intensive care unit (ICU) of an undisclosed hospital.

The musician, in an accompanying note, appreciated God for keeping him alive.


The ‘Owo’ crooner also said he has never felt so helpless in his life. He added that at a point, he thought he was dead.

“Alhamdulilah. I bless God for reviving me. I’ve never felt helpless in my life. Can’t thank you enough ‘Oluwa’. I thought ‘ awo loo’ like that this morning ni,” he wrote.

CDQ, however, did not disclose why he was hospitalised.


The indigenous hip-hop rapper rose to prominence after dropping ‘Nowo E Soke’, a 2015 hit single, wherein he featured Wizkid.

He has since then established himself as a popular figure in the Nigerian music industry.

In November 2016, the rapper launched his own record label N.S.N.S — a short form for No Struggle No Success Entertainment.

CDQ is also popular for weighing into issues affecting the country.


In July, the rapper lamented the cost of living in the country.

“Are we going to ignore the fact that things are really getting difficult for the masses day by day in Nigeria. People are getting tired already….,” he had said.
