During an Instagram live session, the singer explained that the whole saga began when he expressed his opinion on the fact that popular author Chimamanda Adichie accepted a traditional Igbo chieftaincy title but ignored a national honor, implying that this shouldn’t have been the case given that the region should be clamoring for the Presidency.
Brymo afterwards claimed that that commnent was taken out of context after which he received insults, death threats and a petition was launched against him. The sonic-artist went on to state that someone asked him to apologize to the Igbos, to which he responded, “F*ck The Ndi Igbo!! To H*ll With It! a statement he used to refer to those who were championing that movement for his downfall.
According to Brymo, the word “it” referred to that movement and not the whole trobe itself. 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
