Brymo, the Nigerian singer, has taken a swipe at people criticising him for supporting Bola Tinubu, presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), ahead of the 2023 election.

In May, the musician endorsed Tinubu’s presidential bid, arguing that only the ex-Lagos governor has what it takes to better the lots of Nigerians.

His choice of a presidential candidate, however, did not sit well with many of his critics, particularly supporters of Peter Obi.

Obi is the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP).

In several posts via his Twitter page on Monday, the ‘Ara’ crooner, however, called out his critics for trying to “impose” Obi on him.

He further reiterated his support for Tinubu, arguing that “my choice will spread city vibes across the country”.

Byrmo said the ‘Obidient’ movement, which he claimed is heading for “doom,” suggests that Obi’s supporters “are being commanded.”

“After the moaning could you please bring details of your aspirant’s preferability for the job? Could you share on why and why it may be most prudent to vote your choice? I’m for superior argument taking the lead, and I think my choice will spread city vibes across country,” he wrote.

“And since we’re being petty, and scolding each other for making terrible choices; Obedience suggests y’all are being commanded. I will not take part in the festering of tryrannical leanings.. you are already displaying symptoms of it too, insist on your way without explain!

“They are asking that I obey or have no peace..that I do not have mental capacity to choose different..that Obedience is only way..!!. It’s madness!..yet I’m not too famous or old for this, I no go give up on them.

“…as on the day I tweeted ‘city boy’, I had no knowledge BAT had a slogan that was suggestive of entitlement in ‘Emi lo kan’… though not wrongly stated, .. He dropped the first slogan, followed unifying truth… ‘Obedience’ is out with the regimes, a movement like that spells doom.”

He also tackled a user who advised him to stay away from politics and focus on his music career.

“You should not.. I’m one with the words I share… politics is the area all things seem to scream NO!… yet it is politics that governs and presides over all things within the polity!… to not choose one is to do so with another candidate.: and you do have an aspirant, who? Why?” he responded.
