• Artiste goes for broke, rails: This is madness! This is war!
Nigerian singer, Olawale Ashimi aka Brymo, may have sounded the trumpet of discord and sax of mayhem in a fit of dissent. Flashing his angst, like the fly-like thought crawling in the mind’s garbage can, Brymo recently alleged that Innocent Idibia, popularly known as Tuface, accused him of sleeping with his wife, Annie.
In a long Twitter thread on Monday night, Brymo narrated his feud with Tuface, alleging that the latter sent thugs to beat him up.
Brymo tweeted, “In the very recent past, a man falsely accused me of sleeping with his wife and I’ve waited in angst, and the words were never taken back still, efforts were consistently made to prove I did it still and my soul has known no lasting peace ever since.”
The singer proceeded to narrate two awkward meetings with Tuface and another one with Annie Idibia. He said, “Mr. Innocent Idibia had, at an AFRIMA press conference in 2015/16 or thereabout, walked into the room, sat beside me and elbowed me in a supposed greeting, as much as 4-5 times, repeatedly, while looking away, saying ‘Brymo, Brymo…’ and we exchanged no other words that day!”
The singer also said that during a meeting with a group of people, Annie Idibia asked him, what the future held for his career. Brymo said he considered the question “a sleek attack.”
He tweeted, “Fast forward to a few years ago, he approached for a feature.. specifically asking me to get on a track with him. I was initially reluctant to consider it because I still didn’t know why he did what he did at the press conference years before…well, I got persuaded to meet!!
“I had, the week before or so shared the company of his wife, a female friend of theirs and my partner’s, and my partner herself.. and within minutes she, Mrs. Idibia had asked what the future held for my career.. a question I considered a sleek attack. My answer was my future!!
“I proceeded to responded that I’ll be Africa’s finest act alive and that I’ll reign for a decade .. and I knew I had shot back nicely!”
In another meeting with Tuface, according to Brymo, the music icon “made a point of referencing another artiste, who in the past had claimed to be “King” at his expense. Letting me know what my fate might be if I kept eyeing ‘his Throne.’ Weeks later, I saw the other act bowing to him repeatedly on stage!”
Brymo also recounted how he was lured to a hotel and attacked by some thugs. “Later, I found out from an undisclosed source that Mr. Idibia was responsible for the attack. I couldn’t decide if it was for supposedly bedding his Mrs or for claiming the spot of the greatest artiste alive!
“Up until a few weeks ago, I have found myself being forcefully shoved to take on his life’s image, to make his mistakes and experience his pains. Mr. Idibia has truly gone and tinkered with my life for months.
“It may be prudent of him, to desist from interactions with things and people that are close to me, in my domestic spaces, and in the field of survival. I have carried these emotions for many months. It’s not funny. This is madness!”
Daddy Freeze, a self-styled pastor and on-air personality (OAP) has, however, issued a subtle reproach to Brymo over his post.
Reacting via his Instagram page, Daddy Freeze told Brymo it was wrong of him to have said such a thing. He wrote, “Brymo, in my humble opinion, saying this is wrong…Haba.”
However, Brymo has responded to fans who criticised him over his post. He said, “And hush your ‘complicated writing’ and ‘too much drug’ banter, ya’ll will learn about indignation this time…some things should never be said, and when spewed must be retracted right there.. this is war and it’s my easy win, I waited almost two years to start!!.”
Brymo vowed, “Innocent Idibia will never accuse another artiste this way ever again..this is the last time!!!… I Waited, and now I’ll tell every soul how he runs around publicly feigning humility.. while privately having the self-esteem of family and friends for dessert!!.: No more!!”
It would be recalled that Tuface and Annie Idibia made the news, recently, over an allegation of marital infidelity. Crisis erupted after Annie accused Tuface of spending time with one of his baby mamas, Pero Adeniyi.
The couple are yet to react to Brymo’s allegations,
