The artiste unveiled this on Instagram on the sixth of May where he said the class was made created by him to mend the ills of the standard, which implies a music with next to zero substance or something else, popular(Pop) music.
In the Nigerian music scene, the ‘option’ was designed by me in 2013 as a cure to the ills of the standard, not to be a piece of it.. to be ‘elective’ implies that the way toward recording, performing, conveying and rating your work is not quite the same as the standard”
This decree is starting to confront a negative response from a few fans who despite voice their adoration for the capable artiste and his ability, they accepted they’re some other outstanding artistes that has been before him and gave Nigerians a kind of the Alternative sound. While greater part consider the preferences Kris Okotie, Harry Moscow and Kris Mba ought to be acknowledged, some others conveyed the rundown nearer to the new age like Asa, Bez, and Nneka. Be that as it may, on the other hand, there are many individuals tolerating this affirmation hailing Brymo commending his commitment to the Nigerian music industry.
This clarification brings about the conversation of “What Alternative Music Really Is…” and also the question Simi asked at the NEClive 2018; “Alternative to what?” But going with Brymo’s post, it is directly saying an alternative to the popular mainstream music which deals more with sounds & people having a good time than art, which Alternative music in most instance, than not centre on.
