Nigerian singer, Olawale Olofooro aka Brymo has said he’s not sorry for saying Igbo presidency is a pipe dream.
The singer, a supporter of Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress had been called a bigot with the aim of dividing Nigerians with his comment.
The singer also stated that it was not “prudent’ to vote for the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, an Igbo man.
Brymo said it wasn’t yet time for Igbos to produce the president of the country.
“As long as there (are) talks by prominent people from Igboland about Biafra, an Igbo presidency will be a pipe dream,” he tweeted yesterday.
Commenting on a tweet supporting Obi, Brymo said, “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!”
His comments, however, sparked negative reactions from tweeps who tagged him as a tribal bigot and being “Igbophobic”.
Reacting to the knocks. Brymo tweeted on Friday, “Dear easterners, I’m not sorry.”
The tweet brought further knocks from the singer’s critics, as they accused him of bringing disunity among different tribes.
A tweep, @Chikezieengr, said, “Brymo is such a disappointment. An ethnic bigot, licking the feet of @officialABAT for a few coins. People like him are the reason for the division in Nigeria.”
Another critic, @Buchyogba, tweeted, “Brymo is depressed. Those around him should show him some love and care.”
