Popular Nigerian singer, Olawale Olofooro, better known as Brymo, has incurred he wrath of Nigerians..



Some Nigerians took to Twitter to criticize the singer after he made a remark regarding the possibility of an Igbo being elected president.

Brymo, who is a supporter of the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, noted that it is not wise to elect the former governor of Anambra Peter Obi as President this year.

The singer also noted that Obi will have to organise “his home front” to convince other regions that Nigeria will be safe in the hands of an Igbo man.

In response to a Labour Party supporter’s tweet, Brymo said, “Don’t respect my intelligence nor choices… you are trying to not accept a 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!”

The singer in another opinion stated that the Igbo presidency will remain a pipe dream as long as there is talk of Biafra in the South-East.

He also tweeted that he would rather have an ‘ailing president’ than vote Obi.

However, the comments did not go down well with Nigerians as they labelled the musician a tribal bigot and “Igbophobic.”

Below are some Twitter reactions:

One Victor Isreal said: “Obasanjo has endorsed Peter Obi. Pa Adebanjo has endorsed Peter Obi. Prominent Yorubas have endorsed Peter Obi. So who’s Brymo to talk down on the Igbos? Why should I be bothered about the support of a man who wore G-strings to promote an album that never sold beyond Unilag.”

Another commenatator wrote: “Brymo is disgusting. Couldn’t campaign for his candidate without throwing ethnic slurs. Election will come and go, we will still be here.”

“I never had issues with Brymo supporting BAT for president because everyone is entitled to their choice but coming out to say Igbos are not ready for the presidency reeks of ethnic bigotry and tribalism. I used to think that man was smart and intelligent but I was wrong,” another commentator wrote on Twitter.

“Peter Obi supporters especially the igbos are delusional, you think if you abuse and bully Brymo like you’ve been doing to others it will make him change his choice of candidate? You can go ahead to abuse people from now till Feb, Peter Obi can only be the president of Onitsha,” one Jade wrote on Twitter.

Another Twitter commentator said: “They are bashing Brymo and he’s retweeting all the slanders, many people on this app are just naturally not feeling fine.”

As of the time of filing this report, over 10,000 people are talking about Brymo on Twitter in Nigeria.
