More than 20,000 individuals have demanded that Ọlawale Ọlọfọrọ, also known by his stage name Brymo, be disqualified from the 8th All Africa Music Awards (AFRIMA) due to his divisive comments about the Igbo culture.
The petition claims that denying the musician the accolade will send him a clear message in light of his recent remarks against the Igbo people.
Charles Ogundele, a Nigerian, initiated the petition against the alternative musician on his own initiative.

He encouraged Nigerians to sign the petition in order to ensure that the musician is banned from receiving the 2023 All Africa Music Award (AFRIMA).

“Some Nigerians signed the petition to prevent the musician from receiving the award after Brymo was nominated by AFRIMA for “Song Writer of the Year” last year.
“In one of his tweets, he wrote ‘fck omo Igbo’, which translates to ‘fck the Igbo people.
