Nigerian singer, Brymo, who held a concert in London, stripped naked to perform his song ‘Heya’ on stage during the event.
The performance was just like the video for the afro-soul song, the singer performed almost stark naked wearing just a loin cloth covering his groin area. Brymo performed his hit song ‘Heya’ at the O2 Academy Islington, London, where he held his concert.
Here is a video of the performance below;
We reported before now, that Brymo who explained why he went naked for the music video said he decided to go naked to tell Nigerians they are uncivilized.
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.”
It was widely believed that the singer pulled a publicity stunt by appearing naked in the video to get the attention of the people, but in his reaction Brymo stated that:
“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.”
