Olawale Ashimi, popularly called Brymo, has opened up on touring outside the nationa nd his plans towards it.

Speaking with Thecable.ng,  Brymo, said:

“Who says I’m not interested in pushing my music outside Nigeria?” he asked.

“There is a lot of effort being made. What you haven’t seen are my tours. You haven’t seen me go on tour abroad. I don’t have a godfather who will bankroll it.

“It’s only my fans in the US and in the UK that will say, ‘enough is enough, whatever it will take, come here and perform’ or I decide that ‘okay, I have enough money now’ let me go to the UK or US and tour.

“But that’s not your primary market. Even if they give you five Grammy nominations, that’s not your primary market. If the Nigerian market is not doing great, I am not doing great.

“Even if I go to Madison Square and fill it up with 25,000 people, if musicians still cannot sell records in Lagos, if you cannot sell a million copies of your album and take a break for three years….

“Yes, we still don’t have a great industry so I feel like constantly trying to contribute to what’s going on here, trying to improve the quality of the music, trying to work with my management to improve the quality of the business.

“I believe those are the things that are most important to me as a Nigerian artist.”
