VIDEO: Brymo apologises over Igbo presidency tweets



Nigerian singer, ?lawale ?l?f?r?, popularly known as Brymo, has apologized for his remarks on Labour Party (LP) 2023 presidential candidate and Igbo’s presidency.

NewsWireNGR reports that the singer had, in an earlier tweet, said that Obi will have to organize “his home front” to convince other regions that Nigeria will be safe in the hands of an Igbo man.

The comment has generated many reactions as some internet users signed a petition against his nomination for the 2022 All Africa Music Award (AFRIMA).

In an apology video, Brymo said; “It is very important you understand that this entire fracas began with me seeing in the media that Chimamanda Adichie refused some national honours and had picked up some traditional title in the East at home.

“And I suggested that for me, it says a lot about the Igbo presidency because that actual seat is what the region should be eyeing right now. I have clamoured for Igbo presidency in the last few years, you wouldn’t believe it.

“It will pop in your mind when you hear the news that Igbos do not actually want the presidency.

“I did not insult the tribe, I am sorry to anyone who it sounded as such to. I was trying to weigh into a very important matter.”
