Nigerians sign petition to stop Brymo from winning AFRIMA over tribalism comments, singer taunts them

Brymo Brymo

Popular Nigerian singer, Brymo, recently became a topic of discussion over his political stance and comments against Igbos on social media.

The music star who had been widely celebrated for his indigenous style of music surprised many people when he shared controversial comments about Igbos.

In a series of posts, the music star made it clear that the Igbos are not ready for the presidency and he went ahead to support APC’s Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Not stopping there, Brymo was credited for saying Igbos are useless people among other tribalist comments and refusing to back down when he was called out for it.

A number of people reacted to the singer’s tribalist comments in different ways and some of them decided to go for his music career.

A petition was raised for Brymo to be prevented from winning the All Africa Music Award (AFRIMA) for Songwriter of the Year.

As of the time of this report, over 9000 people had signed the petition with many of them stating that Brymo is a tribal bigot as their reason.

As ‘Stop Brymo’ continued to trend on Twitter, the singer did not seem disturbed by the backlash and even tweeted about it. According to him, they had started begging. He also laughed and promised to release pressure.
