Popular Nigerian singer, Olawale Olofooro better known as Brymo in a post on social media reacts after being dragged for saying Igbo not ripe for Nigerian presidency.
Brymo who is a supporter of APC presidential flag bearer Bola Ahmed Tinubu in a Twitter post said that it is not wise to elect the former governor of Anambra Peter Obi as President this year.
The singer also noted that Obi will have to organise “his home front” to convince other regions that Nigeria will be safe in the hands of an Igbo man.
In response to a Labour Party supporter’s tweet, Brymo said, “Don’t respect my intelligence nor choices… you are trying to not accept a resolve… argue more then… pls …. It is not prudent to elect him yet, he may have to vividly organise his home front to lead rest of us… an Igbo VP first maybe to test the waters with the region is safer!”
The singer in another opinion stated that the Igbo presidency will remain a pipe dream as long as there is talk of Biafra in the South-East.
He also tweeted that he would rather have an ‘ailing president’ than vote Obi.
However, the comments did not go down well with Nigerians as they labelled the musician a tribal bigot and “Igbophobic.”
However, some Nigerians have taken to Twitter to criticise singer Brymo, after making a remark regarding the possibility of an Igbo being elected president.
In his response, Brymo once again maintained his confidence as he reaffirms what he said earlier.
He tweeted; “Yeah I did … I said it !?..”
