Olawale Ashimi, Nigerian songwriter and singer better known as Brymo, has adjudged himself as “Nigeria’s artiste of the decade”.
The talented singer disclosed this on his social media — in what appeared to be a self-appraisal of his works.
Brymo also made a case for himself with respect to the significant contribution of ‘Oleku,’ saying it is “the biggest Afrobeats song ever”.
‘Oleku’ was released as the lead single off Ice Prince’s debut studio album ‘Everybody Loves Ice Prince’ in 2011.
He went on to make reference to ‘Ara’, his hit single, describing the song as the “biggest in the country’s music industry” since it was released.
“I’m Nigeria’s Artiste of The Decade. Oleku was the right to express deeply, and the biggest Afrobeats song ever..an honor it was my voice ..S/[email protected] … Ara is bigger than any other song in Nigeria since its release… and I curated ‘the alternative,” he wrote on Twitter.

His assertion has since opened the floodgates of reactions on social media platforms, where users registered their different opinions.
While some appeared to disagree, others supported the singer’s claims, arguing that he his works were not given the needed commendations.
Born on 9 May 1986, Brymo has released several songs while also featuring in works of other artistes.
In 2007, he released ‘Brymstone,’ his debut studio album, followed by ‘The Son of a Kapenta’ in 2012.
