@infonaija247 said ” Peter and Paul Psquare have the right to support a candidate of their choice, Peter Obi of Labour party who is from same state of Anambra as them, But Stop Brymo and crucify him because he chose to support Asiwaju Bola Tinubu of APC. Where’s the sense in that?”
“If you want to support ur candidate,support in Peace!! You don’t need to bring down the entire region!!
We have tolerated this foolishness from other tribe alot and it has to stop!!
Brymo issa bigot”@Nwa_Amakaa
“I can’t stop Brymo from winning his awards, or doing good music, but I can stop myself from seeing his tweets & that of his followers.
He’s such a disappointment and a big shame” @CChieringo
“I love @BrymOlawale
Do I support his rant, maybe/maybe not, do I know what pushed him to make such tweet, nope bt I’d ❤️ to hear it.
You stop Brymo from winning the award, then what? His life stops? He stops doing him? Nope, fvck y’all then Brymo signs petition against himself😂. ”
“Nobody cares about Brymo’s political choices. It’s his fundamental human right. But if he has to denigrate the Igbos to market his candidate then that’s unacceptable. Peter Obi is a force that reckons with every tribe and neither Brymo nor his unblown music career can stop it 📌”
