The Story of Brymo And His Controversial Tweets


July 8, 2016
Following the death of the two African-American men, Alton Sterling and Philando Castille, who were both shot by police officers in less than one week, the internet was thrown into major mourning and outrage.

The Black Lives Matter movement was very much active and many Nigerians shared their concern on this.

And it was in this moment that Nigerian musician, Brymo, chose to share another dose of ridiculousness. According to him, the black man ‘likes to suffer’.

Just a few weeks ago, he told someone who begged him to help fund his education to drop out of school.

And in this sensitive moment, he decided to blame black people for these killings.

Brymo has kuku shown his true colours.

When someone that says school is important says something shows us the importance of school…

Brymo needs to probably take history classes and learn what racism is really about.

And if he was trying to be Fela, he has obviously failed, woefully.

It’s rather unfortunate that some random Nigerian artist believes black people like the racism and prejudice they face.
