“I didn’t insult the Igbos” – Brymo apologize over his controversial anti-Igbo rant

Nigerian singer , Brymo, who has been under fire for taking a swipe at Igbos has tendered an apology.

Taking to his Instagram page, Brymo stated that the whole drama started with Chimamanda Adichie receiving a Chieftaincy title in her hometown, yet shunning a national award.

According to him, he has been an advocate for Igbo presidency in the past few years and was only calling out the Ndi Igbo movement, which he is clearly not pleased with.

Brymo stated that his words were misconstrued as he didn’t insult any tribe.

“It is very important you understand that this entire fracas began with me seeing in the media that Chimamanda Adichie refused some national honours and had picked up some traditional title in the East at home.

I have clamoured for Igbo presidency in the last few years, you wouldn’t believe it.

I said, “Fuck Ndi’Igbo to hell with it – the ‘it’ refers to the peddlers of the movement i.e people championing for it.

On insulting the tribe, Brymo said, ” I did not insult the tribe, I am sorry to anyone who it sounded as such to. I was trying to weigh into a very important matter”.
