We’ve previously lauded artists like Burna Boy for their prolific and regular output.
However, even if Burna Boy has a large amount of projects, he still pales in comparison to some musicians. Take, for example, Timaya. Timaya, on the other hand, does not have nearly as many projects as Brymo.
Olawale Olofooro, the alternative artist whose full name is Olawale Olofooro, was a pop sensation in the 2010s as part of Nigeria’s Choc City rebirth. With his songs and collaborations (“Ara,” “Oleku”), he helped put Choc City on the map.
He signed with the Audu Maikori-founded Chocolate City after releasing his debut album, “Brymstone,” in 2007. However, he didn’t release his sophomore album until 2012, under the Choc City label.
“The Son of a Kapenta,” his sophomore album, is a very strong pop album, and one of the finest of 2012. Also, he was frequently misidentified as his first, while in fact he was his second.
He had a falling out with Chocolate City shortly after the release of his album, and after a series of litigation, he left the record label. After that, he transitioned from afro-pop to alternative music, releasing the album “Merchants, Dealers, and Slaves” in 2013. That album is, without a doubt, a Nigerian classic today.
He’s released twelve more projects since then, bringing his total to fourteen. In that time period, no other artist had amassed as many awards. If he continues to release music at his current rate, it will take years for any artist to drop enough projects to catch up with him.
However, Brymo, a well-known songwriter and singer, does not appear to be slowing down. He’s published four albums and one EP in the last two years. There are five projects in total! Most artists require more than ten years to complete five projects (ask Wizkid.)
Only Olamide and Brymo can compete with Brymo when it comes to releasing music. Even then, Olamide will not be able to compete with the vocalist. That, in my opinion, makes him a legend!
