Why I Went Nude – Brymo

Singer , Olawale Ashimi, aka Brymo , practically crashed the internet during the week when he released a video for his song , Heya . In the video , the singer appeared in his birthday suit , playing a grand piano under a network of bridges .

In a chat with Punch , the singer shed light on why he took that step . “ The song is an expression of my environment .

I like to paint as much as I can and I think that most of us are bush people, even though we live in cities. The video portrayed a bush man living in the city .

If you look around , you wouldn’ t see much evidence of civilisation . We did not create most of the things that we use in this country and that ’ s not good . We need to think, he stated . ”

Reacting to claims that his nudity in the video was just a publicity stunt to draw attention to the song , Brymo said , “ Even if it ’ s a publicity stunt , is there anything wrong with that ? Singers spend a lot of time and energy in the studio .

So is there anything absurd in them drawing some attention to their songs ?”
On whether he feels underrated in the country , he said , “ No, I am not .

People are used to a system and if you want to change them, you have to do it slowly .

My albums are doing well and we found that most people, who download my music are in Europe and America. Right now, I have no complaints . ”

Dismissing claims that he doesn ’ t perform at top concerts in the industry anymore , Brymo said , “ I only perform at top shows . Just this week , I have had two events .

I will also be performing today ( Sunday ) as well .

Generally , I get a lot of love in Africa , and as for the people who say they haven ’ t seen me perform on big stages lately , they are most likely looking in the wrong places .

As much as I ’ m looking at having an international career , Africa will always be my root .

I was once signed to an American company , EGM , and I released an album with them but things didn ’ t go as planned and we went our separate ways. ”
