Talented Nigerian artist, Olawale Ashimi better known as Brymo who just released his sixth studio album has left a lot of people speculating as he failed to feature any guest artist on the album.
He, however talked about his reason for that in an interview with BBC Yoruba on Tuesday, March 3rd, 2018.
Brymo, during the interview revealed that it is difficult to work with artistes who don’t talk about the same issues as him and Asa is the only singer he wishes to collaborate with.
According to him while speaking in the Yoruba language, he said; “I have spoken to Asa’s handlers. What remains is to set it up. She is the one person who I can collaborate. What she talks about — love, social issues, everyday issues — are things that matter to me”
“I had important things to talk about. It is hard to bring someone who doesn’t know my thought process to collaborate on such a song. Many of my colleagues collaborate because of positioning. There is so much politics involved in collaboration so I chose to sing alone. I have collaborated in the past but I was not satisfied with the outcome.”
Brymo also went further to state that most veteran indigenous musicians often “sing alone”.
“If you look at it well, many people like KSA, KWAM 1, Ayinde Barrister and other indigenous musicians hardly collaborate,” he said.“Abroad too, people like Adele, Coldplay and Bruno Mars record albums alone,” he said.
