Citing his “hateful messages” against the Igbos, the petition noted that not winning the award would send a strong message to the singer.

The petition, initiated by one Charles Ogundele read, “Brymo recently put up a series of hateful messages on Twitter toward the Igbo tribe of Nigeria, going as far as retweeting a tweet which said that all Igbos are senseless.

“In one of his tweets, he wrote ‘fck omo Igbo’, which translates to ‘fck the Igbo people.’

“His actions are ones which spark disunity and hatred in a multicultural nation that Nigeria is.

“Preventing him from winning the All Africa Music Award would send a strong message to him, and people like him, that he can’t get away with such blatant ethnic bigotry.”

As of the time of filing this report, the petition had over 6,324 signatures.
