I went nude to remind Nigerians that they are uncivilised

Singer , Olawale Ashimi , aka Brymo , practically crashed the internet during the week when he released a video for his song, Heya .

 In the video , the singer appeared in his birthday suit , playing a grand piano under a network of bridges .

In a chat with Sunday Scoop , the singer shed light on why he took that step . “The song is an expression of my environment . 

I like to paint as much as I can and I think that most of us are bush people , even though we live in cities .

 The video portrayed a bush man living in the city . If you look around , you wouldn ’t see much evidence of civilisation . 

We did not create most of the things that we use in this country and that ’s not good . We need to think , he stated .”

Reacting to claims that his nudity in the video was just a publicity stunt to draw attention to the song, Brymo said , “Even if it’s a publicity stunt, is there anything wrong with that ?

 Singers spend a lot of time and energy in the studio . 

So is there anything absurd in them drawing some attention to their songs ?”

On whether he feels underrated in the country , he said , “No , I am not. 

People are used to a system and if you want to change them , you have to do it slowly. My albums are doing well and we found that most people , who download my music are in Europe and America . Right now, I have no complaints.”

Dismissing claims that he doesn ’t perform at top concerts in the industry anymore , Brymo said , “ I only perform at top shows .

 Just this week , I have had two events . I will also be performing today ( Sunday) as well.

 Generally , I get a lot of love in Africa , and as for the people who say they haven ’t seen me perform on big stages lately , they are most likely looking in the wrong places .

 As much as I ’m looking at having an international career , Africa will always be my root .

 I was once signed to an American company, EGM, and I released an album with them but things didn ’ t go as planned and we went our separate ways . ”
