Brymo, a Nigerian singer, has admitted to declining a request to feature Simi in a song because the singer refused to sleep with him.
According to the singer, he merely wanted to know what it was like to work with a person with whom he was passionately attached.
He did, however, reveal that the singer turned him down, but a part of him still feels guilty about the condition he imposed on her.
He also stated that she was not the only one who had reached out to him in order to realise his aspirations.
In his words:
“There’s a part of me that wants to seek remorse for my condition for a requirement with talented Simi. I just wanted to have that experience of making music with a female act I was bedding. Of course I had to let go of the desperation. I wanted a collaboration that involved sex with my female collaborator.”
Brymo’s revelation has sparked outrage on social media with many netizens criticizing him for being sexist and promoting a toxic work culture.
Some also called for him to be held accountable for his actions and for Simi to speak up about her experience.

@thickgodesss commented: “If u are a woman in this country. Pray that God will remove any man that will be ur downfall in this life..”
There’s a part of me that wants to feel remorse for my requirement for a collaboration with the talented Simi.. yet I am reminded that I was indeed, and honestly seeking to experience the outcome of making music with a female act I was bedding..
