Olawale Ashimi, a.k.a. Brymo, a Nigerian singer, has apologized to South-East citizens for his anti-Igbo statements. The ‘Ara’ singer sparked outrage when he went on a Twitter rant against Igbos over political issues.

Brymo had made a series of tribally motivated posts but the straw that broke the camel’s back was when he tweeted; “F**k The Ndi Igbo!! To Hell With It!!”.

After that, a Change.org petition was started calling for the immediate revocation of his AFRIMMA appointment.

The musician chose to apologize during an Instagram live session after feeling the pressure and outrage from Nigerians.

The ‘Ara’ crooner stirred controversy when he went on a Twitter tirade against Igbos over political affiliations and differences.

Brymo added that the argument began when he suggested that award-winning author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie shouldn’t have accepted a traditional Igbo chieftaincy title while disregarding a national distinction, given how the area is pushing for the Presidency.

Someone requested the ‘Oleku’ hitmaker to apologize to the people of the southeast, to which he replied, F**k The Ndi Igbo…

He claimed that the comment was removed from context because he only used it to allude to individuals who were pushing the movement for his demise, not the entire tribe.

HE SAID: “I DIDN’T INSULT THE TRIBE (IGBOS), I WILL NOT DO THAT. I APOLOGIZE TO ANY ONE WHO IS SADDENED BY SUCH TWEET. I WAS TRYING TO WEIGH IN ON VERY IMPORTANT MATTERS.”
