Brymo faces Backlash on Twitter for telling a Fan to “Drop Out and Chase your dreams”




Musician Brymo has been trending on Twitter for a few hours after he told a Twitter user to drop out of school and chase his dreams like Brymo himself did.

He also posted a series of tweets on how he is one of the greatest Nigerian artists of all time today and how his album Klitoris is the album of the year, for many years to come.

A lot of Twitter users felt Brymo was out of line to advise someone to drop out of school while others agreed with Brymo’s line of thoughts.

What do you think?

    He’s very correct,everyone with his personal problems.If university life is too expensive for the the guy,he can better try other things to support himself.BN please don’t forget to post the story of Ifeoma okeke that was wickedly brutalized by Emeka Ngejieme and Chiemeka Anosike,just because she told them to stop smoking,it’s on Sahara reporters.
    Young ones can learn to be disciplined and tolerant from the public shaming of those wicked people.

      That is why we should be careful whose wisdom we seek and whose blessings we want to tap into. Since he already named an album Klitoris, I am wondering if he will propose the twitter follower create an album named after balls or cervix or the penile head or something.

    I just hope he isn’t telling his kid(s) this nonsense

      lol, why is it nonsense though?

      excellence and school are often unrelated. what if your kids are bored at school and excited about something else?
      like say you’ve mastered a videogame, right, do you keep playing it, or try another one, or maybe even make your own?

      just saying…that’s one of the reasons to quit school.

    Dear Brymo, you are not entitled to solve anybody’s problem but the fact you dropped out of school does not mean everybody else has to drop out. Maybe your level of success is not what everyone is looking for. You are a musician, nobody needs a certificate for that. There are people that actually have to learn at school to keep you healthy when the energy is no longer there, when your voice starts having problems, when your new born baby is having a minor fever.
    You never know what situation leads people to beg online. I know there are people that are not genuine and I hate to see people beg online but that reply was WRONG. JUST WRONG.
    Tell them away in some other way. Fact is you are a public figure and I have met really gullible people that have refused to go to school just because they feel that Bill Gates rules the world and does not have a certificate. I see them on the street all day. They spend their day waiting for that almighty miracle, so by saying this you don’t know how many people you have just made to refuse Jamb.

    The corrupt politicians that rob Peter to pay Paul,have created the sense of entitlement in some Nigerians,that believe anyone doing well must give them money,forgetting that we all have our different responsibilities and families to attend too.
    In other countries funds are set aside for students,as both grants,scholarships or loans where prospective students can draw from.But due to the massive corruption by our wicked politicians and public workers all funds set aside In Nigeria are always stolen.

    I agree with Brymo to an extent, most are schooled to conform but very few are educated. All these schooling in Nigeria, to what end? The system even falls short. Everyone should be free to find themselves with or without a western education.

    Each to his/her own. Everyone has a unique path in life, so because something worked for someone, doesn’t mean it will work for me. Brymo has a point that can’t be brushed off, I just wish he said it better. It’s not as easy as dropping out of school. You have to have a vision.

    @ Tolu, The world, not just Nigeria, is changing. Gone are the days of Masters or B. Sc. by force. The world is looking for problem solvers, not job seekers. People need to shift their mindset and look for ways to change and better the world on a whole, starting from their country. It’s not every time you blame the gov, although they have a lot negative input as well. Just like the saying goes “ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.”- That’s the mindset great nations like U.S. was built on. I feel like the so called corruption starts from the people of Nigeria themselves. Even if the gov changes things, the people are corrupt and greedy as well.

    I personally wish our government gives more attention to trades and polytechnic education, which is usually 2 years, if I’m not mistaken. The issue of joblessness can be tackled from that perspective. But in a society where people try to show off their wealth, Dr. degrees, and status, I seriously doubt youths will even be interested in the first place. We need a drastic change of mindset.

    Good to always look up to God,rather than man,N65k is too much to ask;if you are genuine.

    You may just ask for his assistants,and let him know any support you get will be appreciated.Placing a burden on him to the tune of N65k to me is unnecessary.With a lot of fraudulent people around,it can be very difficult to know who’s honest or sincere.

    I agree with Brymo to an extent; but what extraordinary talent do you have? (though that self-proclaimed title……… -_-)

    People are quick to say Bill Gates dropped out…… well, do you have an idea as big as Microsoft inside you, waiting to be actualized?

    Steve Jobs dropped out, but created Apple
    Mark Zuckerberg dropped out….. see Facebook
    Cosmas Maduka didn’t go to Uni…… Coscharis Group (alleged shenanigans aside)

    Oprah Winfrey…… see her empire.

    These people dropped out to FOCUS on actualizing what was inside them. They needed plenty of time for that, school was a hindrance.

    However, some people have no plans, no goals, or at the most, very mediocre ideas….. and think dropping out will do them any good. Don’t go and drop out and start mopping o.‎

    I agree with Brymo, School is not meant for everyone you don’t need sch to be educate must Ppl waste years Insch n come out with nothing, if u can not put urself thru sch now learn a trade n make something of urlife. U can always go back to sch when u later. I don’t believe you need sch to be smart, they are graduates who can’t even defend their field of study

    Everyone shouldn’t go to school. But no 1 should be that arrogant/haughty oo. Celeb phase out too. Then that album will now be played only during oldies request. Heck even #AfricanQueen is obsolete already. Lol

    True talk @Brymo, we so much glorify certificate in this country, not everybody will go to school, being a graduate doesn’t make you a success,it’s the skills you acquire that is most important. I so much respect the Whites for that.

    This is a very controversial subject. In as much as education is very vital in society, however; we have several instances whereby people go to school and bag several degrees, awards, etc; but thereafter, remain jobless and bored at home for years! In such an instance, it is advisable to go out there, fend for yourself, embrace entrepreneurship and make a name for yourself, rather than lie on your hot bed frowning from morning till night.

    Nevertheless, personally, I don’t support the idea of ruling out education or dropping out of school as the case implies, just because you feel you can succeed out there without a degree? Please, we still need educated leaders in this society to move the nation. If you are fortunate enough to get educated, that is great, but if you aren’t fortunate to go to school, then I advice you to consider venturing into something (music, football, cosmetics, fashion, trading, importation, hair making, catering/baking etc). You dont need a BA, Bsc, Msc or PhD before you own a boutique.

      I very much agree with what you said. the subject is indeed controversial. it all depends, honestly.

  16. How does naming an album correlate with this issue?

    June 6, 2016 at 1:44 am

    How does the naming of an album correlate with telling the guy to chase is dreams?outside the four walls of universities?Some people after eating fufu and egusi will just start vomiting trash,please park well you are not making sense.

    Brymo is extremely highly educated. I am certain he reads a lot. Actually I’ll like to learn more about his knowledge diet. He is not a normal human being o.

    Kpali is not education. But go to school sha 🙂 make your own no go wowo pass :-/

    Not everybody is Brymo. He’s actually a genius – in words, music, spirit – and I think that was there when he was a child already, and somehow has been nurtured and has survived up to now.

    More about education and genius, nne call me (not Charly Boy).

    brymo, u are right to some extent, people should be trained in skilled trade if they have the talent and abilities. not everyone has to have higher education. but everyone should have basic education. and everyone should read books especially history books. we also need to learn native sense, traditions of ethnicity, spirituality and rituals. not talking juju but local traditions and their essence in uplifting peoples culture. i find that we are getting lost and confused with this outside influence of christianity and islam mix with our native stuff. native first! thirdly, traveling is very important to expand the mind and understanding of the universe and universal workings. we are all one but have our variances and individual quirks. its lovely to travel and see how others make sense of the world. there will be reinforcements of what u already know and contradictions. everything has validity. travel is enriching. i can also advide everyone to pick up and learn a musical instrument. it will bring you closer to the SPIRIT. its one of the most beautiful gifts God has given to us, dont miss out! then finally learn to give back, to plant seeds to nurture and to lead. all these things u can do without a higher education. but u need to have an intelligence and that will come with exposure and experience over time. and u dont need to go to higher university for that but u gotta be smart about making up for what information that you lack. I think after secondary school, everything else can be self taught. but u have to be dedicated. do stuff that u love to do!

    fact is for you to succeed /excel in some particular fields, you HAVE to go to school (uni, poly etc). some skills can only be gotten within the walls of a uni/poly

    it is not necessary to have a University degree to achieve success.

    Higher education (that is education beyond the Secondary School level provided by a University, Polytechnic or College) is not necessary for success.
