Brymo has responded to fans who called him out over his questionable and controversial comments, which have been tribally motivated. The singer had stated that he would not vote for presidential candidate Peter Obi due to his ethnicity.
On the 31st of December 2022, Brymo had responded to a tweet that talked about all candidates vying for the position of presidency; his comments caused a public uproar on social media.
He had shared the comment that read:
“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 comments were met with negative reactions from Nigerians who questioned this opinion, and some fans had cancelled the singer as an artist they admired.
This prompted Brymo to share another comment.
“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!..”
