Sensational singer, Brymo, who had last week trended for performing almost unclad in the video for the lead single from his 6th album, Oso, has defended his decision to wear nothing but a loincloth in the music video ‘Heya’.
 

Brymo in the ‘Heya’ video

While speaking in an exclusive interview with PUNCH’s Sunday Scoop, popular Nigerian singer, Olawale Ashimi, a.k.a Brymo, opened up on why he appeared in his birthday suit, playing a grand piano under a network of bridges in the latest video of his song, “Heya.”

The singer which shutdown the internet and trended on social media during the week when he released a video for his latest song shedded light on why he took that step.

He said: “The song is an expression of my environment. I like to paint as much as I can and I think that most of us are bush people, even though we live in cities. The video portrayed a bush man living in the city. If you look around, you wouldn’t see much evidence of civilisation. We did not create most of the things that we use in this country and that’s not good. We need to think, he stated.”

In a reaction to claims that his nudity in the video was just a publicity stunt to draw attention to the song, Brymo said, “Even if it’s a publicity stunt, is there anything wrong with that? Singers spend a lot of time and energy in the studio. So is there anything absurd in them drawing some attention to their songs?”

On whether he feels underrated in the country, he said, “No, I am not. People are used to a system and if you want to change them, you have to do it slowly. My albums are doing well and we found that most people, who download my music are in Europe and America. Right now, I have no complaints.”

 

Dismissing claims that he doesn’t perform at top concerts in the industry anymore, Brymo said, “I only perform at top shows. Just this week, I have had two events. I will also be performing today (Sunday) as well. Generally, I get a lot of love in Africa, and as for the people who say they haven’t seen me perform on big stages lately, they are most likely looking in the wrong places.

 

“As much as I’m looking at having an international career, Africa will always be my root. I was once signed to an American company, EGM, and I released an album with them but things didn’t go as planned and we went our separate ways.”
