Considering Brymo’s persistent anti-Igbo statements on social media, a Nigerian named Charles Ogundele has started a petition against the alternative musician.

In order to guarantee that the artist is disqualified from receiving 2023 All Africa Music Award, he asked Nigerians to join the petition (AFRIMA).

Some Nigerians joined the petition to prevent the musician from receiving the prize after Brymo was nominated by AFRIMA for “Song Writer of the Year” last year.

The musician has received harsh criticism from many for remarks he made on the Nigerian Igbo group, according to which they have no right to stake a claim to the presidency.

The remarks drew condemnation from other celebrities and fans, but Brymo stuck with his position and showed that he is not sorry by retweeting the original set of tweets.

Stating his reasons for putting up the petition, Ogundele wrote, “Brymo recently put up a series of hateful messages on Twitter toward the Igbo tribe of Nigeria, going as far as retweeting a tweet that said that all Igbos are senseless.”

He added, “In one of his tweets, he wrote “f*ck omo Igbo,” which translates to “f*ck the Igbo people.” “His actions are ones that spark disunity and hatred in a multicultural nation like Nigeria.”

The writer of the petition believed that depriving Brymo of the honor would send a powerful message to the singer.

Preventing him from winning the All Africa Music Award would send a strong message to him and people like him that he can’t get away with such blatant ethnic bigotry.

Over 6,000 people had signed the petition as of the time of this publication.
