Famous Nigerian musician Paul Okoye, a.k.a Rudeboy of the PSquare, has lashed out at popular singer and actor, Olawale Ibrahim Ashimi, popularly known as Brymo describing him as a tribal bigot.
Africa Today News, New York reports that Mr. Brymo, who has always made his stance known against voting for the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, for being an Igbo man, took to his Twitter handle yesterday to lambast the entire Igbo tribe.
He wrote, ‘F*ck The Ndi Igbo. To Hell With It.’
Reacting to the anti-Igbo comment on his Twitter handle, Paul Okoye, a staunch supporter of the Obedient movement, warned Brymo to mind his speech.
While noting that the February 25th general election would come and go, and the people would return to their everyday lives, he said, ‘election will go, and everyone will move on. Mind what you are preaching.’
‘But you have decided to be a tribal bigot because you think you are getting some attention by insulting a particular region of the country, and some people are praising you. as an artiste, I’m only disappointed.’
Africa Today News, New York recalls that some Nigerians had earlier taken to Twitter to criticise the singer after making a remark regarding the possibility of an Igbo being elected president.
Brymo, who is a supporter of the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, noted that it is not wise to elect the former governor of Anambra Peter Obi as President this year.
The singer also noted that Obi will have to organise ‘his home front’ to convince other regions that Nigeria will be safe in the hands of an Igbo man.
In response to a Labour Party supporter’s tweet, Brymo said, ‘Don’t respect my intelligence nor choices… you are trying to not accept a resolve… argue more then… pls …. It is not prudent to elect him yet, he may have to vividly organise his home front to lead rest of us… an Igbo VP first maybe to test the waters with the region is safer!’
The singer in another opinion stated that the Igbo presidency will remain a pipe dream as long as there is talk of Biafra in the South-East.
