“I did not say anything that didn’t happen” – Brymo apologizes to those offended by his tweet as he addresses accusations of insulting the Igbos (videoJanuary 14, 2023
Nigerian singer, Ọlawale Ọlọfọrọ, better known as Brymo, has apologized to those who may have been offended by his opinion on the Igbo presidency and revealed why he did not apologize earlier.
Recall that the singer who supports APC’s presidential candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu declared that he would rather have an ailing president than an Igbo president that could lead the country into anarchy.
This statement did not seat well with the Igbo people and Peter Obi supporters who raised a petition to cancel Brymo and stop him from winning the AFRIMA award.
Brymo who had refused to address the issue finally apologized when someone raised the issue on his Instagram live yesterday, 13 January.
According to him, the whole issue started with him hearing that Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie accepted a chieftaincy title in her hometown when she had refused some national honors.
He said this behavior was strange as it suggested the Igbo people themselves were not interested in national recognition and he merely pointed that out.
Brymo explained his careless choice of words as him insinuating disinterest in the topic and apologized to all offended parties.
