Brymo, aged 37, who had a stint in Chocolate City alongside MI Abaga, Jesse Jagz, and Ice Prince, further mentioned that he was presented with a lucrative offer in 2012 to revive his career, but he declined it.

Regarding his departure from Chocolate City, he explained that it was due to the lack of desired outcomes from his popular tracks. Consequently, he chose to pursue his own path and create songs with deeper significance.

In a voice note he released after a curious fan suggested to the singer to do a song with Simi or Adekunle Gold, Brymo disclosed that a part of him wants to feel remorseful about the condition he gave Simi even though he didn’t know she was with Adekunle Gold at the time.

He replied: “Though AG reached out later, i like to think that he didnt check in again, by will or fate because i turned down same request many years before. I also did same with Simi.. said i wanted to get intimate to create intensity, I didnt know they were together of course.”

The singer further revealed that he gave Ghanaian singer, Efya, same condition and all he wanted was to experience what it feels like to make music with someone he’s bedding.

He tweeted; “There’s a part of me that wants to feel remorse for my requirement for a collabration with the talented Simi.. yet i am reminded that i was indeed and honestly seeking to experience the outcome of the making music with female act i was bedding.. i proposed same to efya too then.”

Naija News reports that despite the controversies, Brymo’s talent as a vocalist is widely acknowledged, positioning him as one of the top vocalists in Nigeria, and possibly Africa, a fact he proudly emphasizes whenever possible.
