Brymo Apologizes For Anti-Igbo Comment

Nigerian sonic artist, Olawale Ibrahim Ashimi Ọlọfọrọ, popularly known as Brymo, has apologized to the Igbo community for the recent “anti-Igbo” remarks he made online.

The controversial singer, who has been under fire for his questionable and controversial comments, which were tribally motivated, has been in the news all week. Brymo has decided to apologize to those offended by his tweets such as “F*ck The Ndi Igbo!! To Hell With It!!” and other derogatory remarks directed at easterners.

Sharing his side of the story on an Instagram live session, the singer made it known that the whole fracas started after he shared his view on the fact that popular author Chimamanda Adichie accepted a traditional Igbo chieftaincy title but ignored a national honour, suggesting that it shouldn’t have been the case considering the fact that the region should be clamouring for the Presidency.

Brymo afterwards claimed that that comment was taken out of context after which he received insults, and death threats and a petition was launched against him. The sonic artist went on to state that someone asked him to apologize to the Igbos, to which he responded, “F*ck The Ndi Igbo!! To H*ll With It! a statement he used to refer to those who were championing that movement for his downfall.

According to Brymo, the word “it” referred to that movement and not the whole tribe itself. He said:

I didn’t insult the tribe (Igbos), I will not do that. I apologize to any one who is saddened by such tweet. I was trying to weigh in on very important matters
