Talented/Gifted Alternate and Afro artist, Brymo returns with a new album titled “9 – Esan”.
This “Esan” is the Yoruba half of the double 9 album released today September 9, 2021 by Brymo. The self-acclaimed most powerful artiste in the world feeds us with a classic project.
With a mix of R&B, pop, and African folk, Nigerian singer-songwriter Brymo has balanced love songs and social commentary on a string of albums popular in his home country. Born Olawale Ashimi, He began writing and playing music while in secondary school. He joined friends in a short-lived band called The Aliens before going his own way in 2005.
Influenced by R. Kelly and Backstreet Boys, Brymo honed a smooth R&B sound on his first album, 2007âs Brymstone. His second album, 2012âs The Son of a Kapenta (a reference to his fatherâs work in carpentry), was a blend of fuji music, electronica, and pop. Nigerian Entertainment Today extended the woodworking metaphor, praising the LP as âa well-polished, solid piece of auditory furniture.â
Brymoâs third album, 2013âs Merchants, Dealers & Slaves, has been read as an allegory for the political and culture climate in Nigeria.Â After releasing his fourth album, Tabula Rasa, in 2014, Brymo took a racy turn on his fifth LP, 2016âs KlitÃ´ris, an album rooted in the sounds of Yoruba music, Afrobeat, and soul.
Brymoâs 2018 release OsÃ³ mostly comprised ballads influenced by Apala and Yoruba music, while his 2020 LP Yellow was a more electronic album with elements of trap and shoegaze.
Amid his solo outings, Brymo joined the alternative rock band A.A.A., which released a self-titled five-song EP in 2019.
His last project- Yellow album examines life, love, society and scenarios in three different parts. Brymo follows it up with this new 9 – Esan album, which consist of 9 Yoruba version tracks.
