Brymo’s Bold Declarations: A Look at His Unapologetic Stance on Music and Collaborations

Nigerian singer and songwriter, Olawale Ashimi Oloforo, popularly known as Brymo, has stirred up controversy with his recent declaration that he would prefer to go to hell than sign under Davido, Wizkid, or Burna Boy.

Brymo made this unapologetic statement during a QnA session on Curiosity Made Me Ask with comedian and social media personality, Adebayo Ridwan Abidemi @isbae_u. Known for hits like “Oleku,” “Ara,” and “Good Morning,” Brymo is no stranger to attracting criticism with his outspoken nature.

In the session, when asked whether he would sign with Davido, Wizkid, or Burna Boy, Brymo responded coldly, stating, “Don’t worry, I will just go to hell. They need recording deals.”

Aged 37, Brymo, who once collaborated with MI Abaga, Jesse Jagz, and Ice Prince during his time at Chocolate City, revealed that he turned down a lucrative offer in 2012 to revive his career. He left Chocolate City due to the lack of desired outcomes from his popular tracks, opting to pursue his own path and create songs with deeper significance.

Unlike Burna Boy, who mentioned Brymo in his lyrics, saying, “Hustle make you no fall off like Brymo,” Brymo indicated that he would not be reciprocating the favor.

Known for sharing his opinions and beliefs unabashedly, Brymo faced backlash when he disclosed in a post on X (formerly Twitter) that he requested a sexual relationship from Simi in exchange for a music collaboration.

Despite the controversies, Brymo’s talent as a vocalist is widely acknowledged, positioning him as one of the top vocalists in Nigeria and possibly Africa, a fact he proudly emphasizes whenever possible.
