Former Chocolate City artist, Brymo, has revealed a unique move he made back in 2005 that is still yielding him dividends from a US music company, Universal Records, up till date.
The singer took to Twitter to reveal in 2005 he sent a demo to Universal Records in New York and as a result of that action he is currently getting paid through his international bank account.
Brymo said, “In 05′ i sent a demo to Universal Records, New York. The package was returned to Lagos unopened because labels will not collect unsolicited music… today I receive royalties weekly from New York, with my own international bank accounts and cards… don’t give up!!!.
He became a household name in Nigerian music after he featured Ice Prince on his 2011 monster hit dubbed, “Oleku.”
The singer has 5 studio albums; “Oso,” “Klitoris,” “Son Of A Kapenta,” “Dealers, Merchants & Slave,” as well as “Tabula Rasa” already to his name and he is a major advocate of “good music” like Nigerians would say in the music industry.
