Brymo explains why he went semi-nude for his music video and his performance in London
Nigerian Singer, Olawale Ashimi, aka Brymo, got people talking when he first released a music video where his butts were all over the screen and when he did same in a performance in London.
In an interview with Punch, Brymo 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.”
DMW singer, Mayorkun says meeting Davido was a blessing
Mayorkun said, in a chat with Punch, “I will continue to remember the day I met Davido for good. He has really been a blessing to me and I will always appreciate him. He is a very good person because he didn’t know me from Adam before offering me a deal with his label. Even when I tell people how our paths crossed, they don’t believe. He took me as a brother from day one and he has been very instrumental to the growth of my career.”

Kanye West deleted his social media – again – and according to PEOPLE, “Kanye got to the point where he realized his rants were becoming unhealthy. This is why he deleted his account.”

“When he gets into these Twitter rants, it’s very difficult for him to stop. It’s like an obsession and it actually affects his life. He knows it’s not healthy, so he wants to take things down a notch,” the report says.
