Over 6,000 Sign Petition Against Brymo’s AFRIMA Win Over His Anti-Igbo Comments

A petition has been launched against Nigerian singer, Olawale Ashimi, popularly known as Brymo, over his comments about Igbos on his Twitter page. The singer had been under fire for stating that an Igbo presidency would only be a “pipe dream” due to the agitation for Biafra. Brymo had also maintained his stand, adding that he was not sorry over his comments, which were tagged “anti-Igbo”.

Know When To Let Go Of That Kpomo In Your Life

By Joe Nwabrije I felt like eating ‘’mama-put’’ that day. So I drove to a legendary mama- put joint in Owerri called Nda Letti. After dishing my rice, beans and dodo, the lady stirred the steaming pot of stew and I caught a glimpse of this juicy coiled kpomo (cow hide) as it surfaced and swam back into the festival of parts featuring shaki, tozo, cowleg etc.I had to have that particular kpomo… When it ended up on my plate, quivering beside one weak dodo, my day was ready to start. I saved the kpomo for last…in anticipation of a crunchy finale. The first sign of trouble was when I ‘’chooked’’ this kpomo with my fork…and it didn’t enter.I should have given up at that point…. but you know nah. So, I looked around…and since there were no sophisticated persons to worry about...
