Nigerian song writer and afro beat singer, Brymo, shares in an interview, how his newly found life as a father has influenced his personality. The Yoruba singer was born as Olawale Olofo’ro and started his music career professionally in 2006, although he has been actively into music four years before then.
Brymo was formerly signed to Chocolate City in 2010, however, he left the label in 2013 due to some legal misunderstanding between the singer and CEO of his label, Audio Maikori. Brymo just released his fifth studio album titled “Klitoris” and he says he now feels like a father, even though he is just a “Baby Dada” *In Cynthia Morgan’s Voice*
The singer welcomed his first child, Waju, on March 27, 2015, with his baby mama, Esse Kakada, and although he has not let the cat out of the bag, if and when he would marry his baby mama, he says “as soon as it happens, everyone will know”. Brymo further explains how fatherhood has changed his life and how it has made him more sensitive to details.
“Fatherhood is another phase in one’s life, and I am learning and getting better at it every day. A lot has changed too, I now pay closer attention to my actions and how they’ll reflect on the people closest to me”.
After staying mute for a while, following his termination on Chocolate City’s contract, Brymo finally signed an International distribution deal with Tate Music Group in 2015. Since then his new singles “Happy memories” and the most recent “Klitoris” among others, are doing well in the industry.
The 29-year old singer is known for his notable voice and bold vocals, a voice that has been shaped unconsciously from years of listening to Fela Kuti, Asa and Fatai Rolling Dollar. From the lyrics of “Klitoris,” which talks about the need for a woman and her place in filling a man’s emptiness, seems like Brymo enjoys having a “wife” figure and of course a child in his life – an experiences which he calls “Life Changing”.
