Nigerian singer, Ọlawale Ọlọfọrọ, popularly known as Brymo, has shed more light into his decision to reject a collaboration request from his female colleague, Simi.
Recall that Brymo caused a major controversy in July 2023 when he revealed that he turned down Simi’s request because she refused to sleep with him.
During a recent interview on TVC, the ‘Olanrewaju’ crooner explained that he had suggested intimacy with her to enhance the song’s intensity. However, when she declined, he rejected the collaboration request.
He further defended his sexual proposition to Simi, who was not married at the time, stating that it was for an artistic purpose.
“One day I was somewhere and I met Adekunle Gold, I was just like, ‘Oh! Gold.’ The first time I was ever meeting him. And he requested a collaboration… When he came to me, I just said flatly, ‘Oga, I’m not doing any collaboration right now.’
“Two weeks after, Simi came. I didn’t know they [Simi and Adekunle Gold were together]. I’m sure you all know about Falz. He took the fall that I was supposed to take. I was the target… But I’m a smart guy.
“When I saw her [Simi], I said no features except I am laying with the woman I am working with so it can really be intense. Did she not sleep with Adekunle Gold? Is that not why the music is extra good? But she said no, and I was like okay, bye-bye and then she left.
“She wasn’t the only one I proposed it to. But guess what? I’ve made music with seven women. I didn’t sleep with anyone of them.
“After that incident, I’ve recorded songs with four women. We didn’t even have that [sexual] conversation at all. We just made music. So, it wasn’t about me asking for sex for collaboration. No, no, it wasn’t about that. For me, it was an artistic pursuit.”
