“I wanted to remind people of our past, that’s why I performed semi-nude” –Brymo

“I wanted to remind people of our past, that’s why I performed semi-nude” –Brymo
Popular Nigerian singer, Olawale Ashimi, well known as Brymo, has revealed that, he performed half-naked because he wanted to remind people of how our forefathers dressed during their time.
Recall that Brymo practically made the internet go agog after a video of his performance in London surfaced on the Internet. For the performance, Brymo wrapped a piece of clothe around his loins while his butt was left bare.
In a chat with Sunday Scoop, Brymo said, “That was the way our forefathers used to dress before the arrival of the West. As a matter of fact, some months ago, a picture circulated on the Internet of a wealthy Igbo farmer who dressed that way in 1930. 
“I just wanted to remind people of our past. It surprises me that people are shocked whenever I dress that way. That was the same way I dressed in the video for my song, Heya. In this part of the world, we are mostly consumers; not creators. If the advanced world should come here and take all of their technologies, we would be left naked.
“However, I appreciate the people who follow my music and see it as a form of artistic expression. Those are the people I do this for. For those who don’t like it; sorry, I don’t know what to do about that.”
He stressed that, “Yes, I am often misunderstood because some people don’t understand what I do. Most of these people are not in the entertainment industry; so, they don’t really understand the concept behind the art. 
“I don’t have a problem with the fact that the mainstream industry doesn’t celebrate me because they only celebrate those they can control. I had already become a musician before finding out how the music industry works.
