    Braymo is a brilliant musician. I don’t know about his claim but what I know is that he makes money from his songs being used as soundtracks in Nigerian movies. He also regularly collects royalties for his songs being used in the Nigerian musical, Bolanle Austen Peter’s WAKA the musical. He is the musician of the elite.

    The name of the last album was for publicity. It was a great album. I got it because of the name. I love Brymo. And he sounds so learned.

    I like Brymo though I haven’t followed him much, but if he says his making money, then I’m happy for him!

    nope, speak for yourself, Brymo. Your music is not for for average Nigerians. Look at Runtown, Falz, Tekno, Davido, P Square, just to name a few

    Pls I don’t understand something. Am happy to learn.

    Will it be logical for BBC to air AMANPOUR or QUEST MEANS BUSINESS for example ( these latter being programs in CNN)?

    Because I don’t understand why bellanaija keeps posting Linda ikeji content on here

    @shekemi I think (going by the example) you have given they can if they have acquired the rights to do so or to air them…they couldn’t just lift it and air it, Amanpour will know about it and pass the right for BBC to air it for instance I would have thought! Brymo might be right tho! Most of those artistes make more money from gigs, tours etc than just record/ album sales as far as I know ( I might be wrong but I would have thought this was d case).

    Naming his album Klitoris was a turn off… no wonder he is complaining about album sales. If as a woman I name my album ‘Penis’ and hope men will rush to buy it am i not silly? He needs to study the market and realize Nigerians are not so ‘sexually-revolutionalized’… we are still very conservative … or hypocritical… which ever is your poison.

    – if you named your album ”Penis” i would definitely rush to get it. C/Klitoris sold though, one of the best albums to have come out of Nigeria..

    The name Klitoris was the only reason why I didn’t, and will NEVER get the album. Marketing BLUNDER!!
