Brymo is his response wrote, “Yet he’s the one with a plan, we all know that. Let a city boy be president for once!.”
He added, “I’ve never met the man, or anyone who represents, or is acquainted with him, or even his relations and political affiliates – and if we stopped trying to kill them off for being old.”

@shady_killz, said, “I really do love you as an artist. However, as a human being, I do not respect your stance on this matter. How can you in good conscience believe Tinubu has a plan? No Brymo, this one broke my heart.”
@tripex111 said, “I actually use to be a fan, because I really saw you as the Fela kind, who speaks against bad people, bad government and all, but no, you only have the gift of music with no empathy for the things you preach. You’re deluded, fam and I’m hurt.”
@AfemDeluxo wrote, “How can your political takes be the opposite of your musical prowess? Chai. City boy ke, is he Pep or something?”
Brymo in response to the critics wrote, “About having a plan; You live in what town?.. I live in Lagos. Yeah! City Boy. It is like Lagos moving into Aso rock. It is guaranteed to work!
“Even if looting is rife it’ll still be the best presidency yet. On God!”
