Former Chocolate City artiste Brymo (born Olawale Ashimi) spoke about love, marraige and his expected child during a brief interview with Punch. When Brymo was asked why he chose to be a father before marriage he said;
Because a child is a product of love, not of marriage. Marriage was made for men to get assistance from women and vice-versa, but society has bastardised the concept. I would rather pay attention to loving the woman I am with than seek the approval of society about it.

Was the pregnancy planned?
I wouldn’t wait till I am over 30 to venture into fatherhood. So, yes you can say it was planned.
How long have you known your baby mama and when do you plan to marry her?
We’ve been together for at least three years. You’ll definitely know when we decide to get married.
Of all the ladies that have come your way, why did you choose to be with her?
It is the connection. You find someone and you flow with them. That’s something you don’t plan.
Earlier this week, Brymo joined the artiste line up to perform at second anniversary of Afropolitan Vibes. Afropolitan Vibes is a free monthly show in Lagos. It holds at the Freedom Park in Lagos and organized by Ade Bantu and Abby Ogunsanya.
