Brymo insists he wasn’t paid to support

Brymo, a stage name for Olawale Ashimi, has refuted allegations that he was paid to support Ahmed , the APC’s presidential candidate.

In an interview with The Punch, he shot down the rumours and added that is his personal choice for president and that he has his support.

The songwriter of the successful song “Oleku” claimed that whenever he expresses an opinion that differs from the conventional wisdom or customary behaviour, someone has always accused him of something.

Brymo observed how ironic it is that people suddenly suspect him of being paid because he is passionate about a presidential candidate after previously calling him broke for speaking out about important problems.

He said; “They used to say I was broke when I spoke up before. Now, they are saying I have been ‘activated’? This is crazy! Well, no. I have not been financially persuaded. I support one of my own choosing!”


On the issue of being attacked for supporting the APC candidate, Brymo said; “My response to them is to wait and let time bring to what tomorrow has in store for us all. BAT ( Ahmed Tinubu) is the incoming president, and that the polity will be better if he is there. That is it.”

He also spoke about starting his musical career early and whether he knew he would be a musician.

”I wouldn’t say I knew. Let’s just say I was looking at sports and stumbled upon music. Or, maybe, my need for order led me to a profession that lets me contribute to every of its departments. That is the sweetest perk for me working in music. Also, I am doing the same job that consists of many other jobs.

Your brand of is one that many have described as ‘highly intellectual and spiritual’. What inspires you?” Brymo said.
