The ‘Klitoris’ singer has been known to be controversial with his posts in recent times. Although he’s considered as an intelligent artist, this perception of him as changed as Nigerians on Twitter felt he’s not doing too well in his reasoning.

The #justiceforUwa trended and many posts about saying ‘No to Rape’ flooded the internet. Nigerians called for justice for Uwa as the perpetrators of her death is still unkown.
It was at this moment of grief and pain that Brymo made a controversial post. The artist who has been accused of rape in the past decided to test the anger of Nigerians on Twitter.
He tweeted @BrymOlawale ”Is Rapist a new word for anyone doing something of note these days?”
This words didn’t go well with his followers who doesn’t know his stand on this issue. Many who can’t find a meaning to his words then got him dragged all night.
Although the music artist is trying to ask if a rapist is a new word to call anyone important these days, it hasn’t gone well with followers on the app when others in the music industry are making their messages clear.
