Brymo has responded angrily to followers who have criticized him for making dubious tribal statements in the run-up to the presidential elections in Nigeria scheduled for 2023.
Brymo has given a response to the supporters who have called him out on his problematic and provocative statements, which have been driven by their affiliation with a certain tribe. The musician had previously declared that owing to Peter Obi’s ethnicity, he would not vote for him in the next presidential election.
The statements that Brymo made in response to a tweet on the 31st of December 2022 that discussed all candidates vying for the role of president generated a public commotion on social media at the time. He had also distributed the following comment:
Maybe… yet I would not pick to near make sure of that … and since the south-west unites us all, Lagos for precision !!…come rain or shine… lol… BAT is … NVM!!.. there’ll be no anarchy.. and the east hurts enough for all to shake when power goes there, plus these matters.
Don’t respect my intelligence nor choices… you are trying to not accept resolve… argue more then… pls …. It is not prudent to elect him yet, he may have to vividly organise his home-front to lead rest of us… an Igbo VP first maybe to test the waters with the region is safer!
These words were received with unfavorable responses from Nigerians who questioned this stance, and some fans had removed the singer from their admiration list as a musician because of this decision. Because of this, Brymo decided to post another remark, which read as follows:
I can’t Believe a whole tribe of people, not up to two people yet came out to say “there’s point in what BrymO is saying”.. instead you all went and found isolated tweets to attack .. fuck you all!..
