Brymo Covers Guardian Life Today
Olawale Ashimi, popularly known by his stage name Brymo, is a songwriter and composer, who was signed to Chocolate City in 2010.
Guardian Life had a chat with the musician who is recognized for his hit songs, Ara, Good Morning and his feature in Ice Prince’s Oleku.
When asked to tell us something most people didn't know about him, he said, “I like to learn new things but it's all a mirage; people make it seem like it's difficult to learn things but you get in there and see that it's really not that hard. Also, I am eternally stubborn; when I have my mind made up, I rarely go back.”
The singer, who talks about drawing his inspiration from the likes of Fela, John Mayer and Frank Ocean, describes being zealous about using his music to talk about social issues that are passionate to him, emphasising his gratitude to the great Fela, for paving the way for artists like him who now have the freedom to express themselves through music.
