Nigerian singer, Brymo has finally reacted to the rape allegations incited against him a couple of months ago by a Twitter user.
A Twitter user, @Biliquis_X, shared a story of an alleged victim recounting how the popular singer allegedly raped her. According to the victim in the shared story, she had visited Brymo with a friend, only for the singer to sexually assault the pair.
Brymo has now addressed the allegations.
The singer asked his followers why the term ‘rape’ is used frivolously across social media recently. He mentioned that the title ‘rapist’ as well as ‘rape’ is becoming too prevalent like it is being affiliated with someone who has done something of note.
Here is what he stated on the microblogging site, Twitter.
“Is Rapist a new word for anyone doing something of note these days ??”
Brymo’s opening tweet did not resonate properly with several social media users, his statement caused controversy on the microblogging site. Some fans of the ‘Ara’ crooner have admonished Brymo’s sceptics and naysayers to do further research to understand his tweet.
