Regarding the first Anti-Igbo remarks he made, the musician gave his side of the story.
Olawale Ibrahim Ashimi, also known as Brymo, a Nigerian musician, has expressed regret to the Igbo community for recent “anti-Igbo” statements he made online.
The controversial artist has been in the headlines all week as a result of his debatable and provocative remarks, which were inspired by tribalism. Brymo has made the decision to apologize to anyone who were hurt by his tweets that included the phrases “F*ck The Ndi Igbo!! To Hell With It!!” and other disparaging statements towards people from the east.
The popular author Chimamanda Adichie accepted a traditional Igbo chieftaincy title but ignored a national honor, according to the singer, who explained his side of the story during an Instagram live session. He suggested that this shouldn’t have been the case considering the fact that the region should be clamoring for the Presidency.
Brymo later claimed the it was misinterpreted, and as a result, he was the target of insults, death threats, and a petition. The musician continued by saying that when someone requested him to apologize to Igbos, he said, “F*ck The Ndi Igbo! With that, to hell! a phrase he employed to describe those who were advocating that movement’s failure on his behalf.
Brymo said that the phrase “it” only referred to that movement and not the entire trobe. He stated:
I did not disparage the Igbo tribe, and I will not do that. I apologise to everyone who this tweet has upset. I was attempting to offer my opinion on crucial issues.
