Brymo, a Nigerian sonic singer, songwriter, and performer, criticized Peter Okoye for his role in the recent police case involving Seun Kuti. After being seen on camera punching a police officer on Lagos’ third mainland bridge, Seun Kuti gained national attention. In response to the incident, Mr. P, Peter Okoye of the P-Square combo, used Twitter to appeal to the Nigerian police on behalf of the Grammy-nominated artist.
Brymo retaliated against Mr. P because he believed the musician was acting with fake sympathy for his colleague Seun Kuti. Brymo asserted that the situation would be rectified and that Seun Kuti did not need to plead for help.
Following the unexpected event, Seun Kuti was taken into custody yesterday morning, Monday, May 15, 2023, by the Nigerian police. Meanwhile, as Brymo stays controversial, his music appears to have been dealt a blow on streaming platforms. One of his critically praised albums, “Yellow,” has been removed from primary streaming services, leaving his fans inconsolable.
The artist said last Wednesday that the 15-track album is being removed from streaming services and might not be put back. After he acknowledged the incident, the singer later disclosed that steps are being taken to re-upload and restore “Yellow” for listeners.
