Nigerian singer, Ọlawale Ọlọfọrọ, better known as Brymo, has for the umpteenth time apologized over his ‘bigoted’ rants against the Igbo tribe, which stirred an uproar on the internet.
Recall that the singer, who supports APC’s presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu, declared that he would rather have an ailing president than an Igbo president that could lead the country into anarchy.
This statement did not sit well with the Igbos, especially Peter Obi supporters, who raised a petition to cancel him and stop him from winning the AFRIMA award.
Brymo who had refused to address the issue finally apologized when someone raised the issue on his Instagram live on Friday, 13 January.
According to the ‘Ara’ singer, the whole issue started with him hearing that Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie accepted a chieftaincy title in her hometown when she had refused some national honors.
He said this behavior was strange as it suggested the Igbo people themselves were not interested in national recognition and he merely pointed that out.
Brymo explained his careless choice of words as him insinuating disinterest in the topic and apologized to all offended parties.
Well, the singer has in a new tweet shared online, pleaded for the forgiveness of those offended by his “bigoted spewings”, stating that he meant no harm.
The singer tweeted;
“Forgive my assertions that came across as bigoted spewings against the Igbo tribe, I did not mean to do harm, I am sorry!!”
