Like Eniola Badmus, Brymo comes under criticism over support for Tinubu

Singer Brymo

Singer Olawale Olofooro, popularly known as Brymo, has come under criticism like actress Eniola Badmus 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 Tinunu 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 use 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.”
