Singer Olawale Olofooro, popularly known as Brymo, has come under criticism like actresses Eniola Badmus, Foluke Daramola, Comedian Mr Ibu among others after he openly declared his support for All Progressives Congress presidential aspirant, Bola Tinubu, ahead of the 2023 election.
The 38-year-old who described Tinubu as a “city boy” noted that the APC chieftain is the one with a plan for the country.
Brymo said this on Twitter on Tuesday, a tweep @ambrosia_ijebu wrote: “This Jagaban (as Tinubu is also called) candidacy has truly helped me see that so many Nigerians actually don’t care about purposeful or diligent leadership.”
“Yet he’s the one with a plan, we all know that. Let a city boy be president for once!” Brymo responded.
He added, “I’ve never met the man, or anyone who represents, or is acquainted with him, or even his relations and political affiliates – and if we stopped trying to kill them off for being old.”
Following his comments, tweeps criticised the singer for supporting Tinubu’s aspiration in the forthcoming election.
Replying to Brymo’s tweet, @tripex111 said, “I actually used to be a fan, because I really saw you as the Fela kind, who speaks against bad people, bad government and all, but no, you only have the gift of music with no empathy for the things you preach. You’re deluded, fam and I’m hurt.”
Another tweep, @shady_killz, said, “I really do love you as an artist. However, as a human being, I do not respect your stance on this matter. How can you in good conscience believe Tinubu has a plan? No Brymo, this one broke my heart.”
Another tweep, @yemihazan, then advised the singer, “Instead of you to face promoting your album, now your fans will start looking at you with a side eye.”
Recall Big Brother Naija star, Pere Egbi listed candidates that are unfit to be president come 2023. He named former Vice President Atiku Abubakar and former Governor of Lagos state, Bola Tinubu as those who made the list of people who shouldn’t be President of Nigeria.
In a tweet on Monday, May 30, the reality TV star then affirmed that there are people who can do better than these two politicians.
