Art Or Madness? Nigerians Air Their Views On Brymo’s Semi-Nude Video

Well known Nigerian singer and songwriter, Olawale Ashimi, with the stage name, Brymo, has inundated the internet with mixed reactions after he went nearly nude in his new visuals for Heya!, the lead single of his sixth studio album OSO.

In this video, which was recorded under a bridge in Lagos Island, the afro-soul singer can be seen walking about almost naked – except for a brown leather looking piece covering his groin area – as he emerges from the water.

The video, which captures the beauty of the lagoon city in its ruggedness, did not go down well with majority of his fans on social media.

While some hailed him for his creativity, projecting real art and staying true to his style of music, others nailed him for basking in the great beauty of his majestic nudity, urging him to bury his music career, as they claim he’s just an attention seeker.

In an Email sent to Pulse NG, the critically acclaimed singer had said: “I decided to appear how my forbears dressed before the arrival of civilization to Nubian continent.”

“We have all seen the costume in many movies, “Heya” was my own representation of that age; A bushman in the city, that’s my image of most black Africans of today. Although we reside in cities, we are still villagers in our thoughts and actions.”

But Nigerians still had to air their views on the semi-nude video.
