Singer, Brymo Reveals The Reason Behind His Semi-nude Performance




Brymo Reveals why he performed semi-nude

Singer, Olawale Ashimi, aka Brymo, was semi-nude in London for a performance. Brymo wrapped a piece of cloth around his loins while his butt was left bare.

In a chat with Sunday Scoop, Brymo explained the reason for his choice of clothing.

He said:
“That was the way our forefathers used to dress before the arrival of the West. As a matter of fact, some months ago, a picture circulated on the Internet of a wealthy Igbo farmer who dressed that way in 1930. I just wanted to remind people of our past. It surprises me that people are shocked whenever I dress that way."

"That was the same way I dressed in the video for my song, Heya. In this part of the world, we are mostly consumers; not creators. If the advanced world should come here and take all of their technologies, we would be left naked."

“However, I appreciate the people who follow my music and see it as a form of artistic expression. Those are the people I do this for. For those who don’t like it; sorry, I don’t know what to do about that.”

Meanwhile, the singer also admitted that he was often misunderstood. He said:

“Yes, I am often misunderstood because some people don’t understand what I do. Most of these people are not in the entertainment industry; so, they don’t really understand the concept behind the art. I don’t have a problem with the fact that the mainstream industry doesn’t celebrate me because they only celebrate those they can control."

"I had already become a musician before finding out how the music industry works. I had two options – to either pack my bags and run or stay. A lot of things are wrong with the music industry as it is currently set up because there is no structure. After releasing an album, an artiste is supposed to take a break for about a year or two before recording another album; but it is not so here"
