Controversial musician, Olawale Olofooro popularly known has Brymo has explained why he is backing the candidate of All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to win the February 25 presidential election.

He said that the Nigerian polity will become better with Tinubu as president.

Brymo gave the explanation in an interview with The Punch.

Recall that the award-winning musician was recently criticised over remarks suggesting that the South East geopolitical zone was not ripe enough to produce Nigeria’s next president.

He has since apologised for the remarks, which many adjudged to be anti-Igbo.

Brymo also advised those criticising his decision to support Tinubu to wait until after the election.

“My response to them is to wait and let time bring to pass what tomorrow has in store for us all.

“I believe BAT (Bola Ahmed Tinubu) is the incoming president, and that the polity will be better if he is there. That is it,” the artiste said.

Asked if he agreed with suggestions that celebrities should not get involved in politics, Brymo said, “Yes, largely. This is because the story of a candidate may rub off on us, the celebrities, and leave us abandoned when they may fail or lose. I know you are surprised. But, yes, I am still doing this. I can’t help it.”

The musician debunked claims that he was financially induced to support Tinubu and make anti-Igbo remarks.

“They used to say I was broke when I spoke up like this before. Now, they are saying I have been ‘activated’? This is crazy! Well, no. I have not been financially persuaded. I support one of my own choosing!” he said.
