Olawale Ashimi, a songwriter and singer better known as Brymo, has called on Nigerians to stop criticising politicians for corruption, arguing that they are less “dangerous” than his colleagues.

In a post on his Twitter page on Friday, Brymo claimed that politicians are not the most corrupt people in the country.

To further buttress his point, the ‘Yellow‘ crooner opined that his “colleagues” are more “dangerous and corrupt” than the political class.

“Stop pointing fingers at the Nigerian politician… My colleagues are more dangerous and corrupt than our political class,” he wrote.


The post has since ignited a heated controversy on the microblogging platform with many Nigerians expressing their different views.

“So we should stop pointing fingers at public officials we elected into public offices and start pointing them towards people running their private lives? Wahala for your colleagues…,” a user replied.

“Politicians where elected to serve & provide our basic needs & infrstructure. That is their job. Musicians are private business owners & are free to be savvy & perhaps lobby to serve their personal interest. Don’t put them in the same category. Swallow pride and network,” another user countered.
