A Nigerian, identified as Charles Ogundele, has started a petition against singer Brymo, due to his alleged anti-Igbo comments on social media.

Anti-Igbo Remarks Spark Outrage, Over 6,000 Nigerians Sign Petition To Stop Brymo's AFRIMA Win

The petition urges others to sign in order to prevent Brymo from winning 2023 All Africa Music Award (AFRIMA).

Last year, AFRIMA nominated Brymo for ‘Song Writer of the Year’ and some Nigerians have signed a petition to stop the singer from winning the award.

Many people have criticized the singer for making derogatory statements against the Igbo tribe of Nigeria, claiming that they do not deserve to hold the presidency. The comments have attracted criticism from fellow celebrities and fans, but Brymo has not apologized and has even retweeted the same tweets that caused the initial backlash.

In the petition, Ogundele stated, “Brymo recently put up a series of hateful messages on Twitter towards the Igbo tribe of Nigeria, going as far as retweeting a tweet that said that all Igbos are senseless.” He added., “In one of his tweets, he wrote “fck omo Igbo” His actions are ones that spark disunity and hatred in a multicultural nation like Nigeria.”

The petition’s creator believes that preventing Brymo from winning the award would send a strong message to the singer and others that such behavior will not be tolerated. As of the time of this report, the petition had garnered over 6,000 signatures.
