Nigerian singer-songwriter Brymo, born Olawale Oloforo, recently delved into the intriguing narrative of his birth, shedding light on profound family secrets.

During a candid conversation with Chude Jideonwo, Brymo shared a touching chapter from his mother’s past, revealing a haunting ordeal that shaped his family’s history.

He recounted how his mother endured a traumatic sexual assault during her teenage years, which tragically led to the cessation of her menstrual cycle.

Despite seeking spiritual and medical remedies in hopes of restoring her menstrual cycle, it wasn’t until she was already five months pregnant that the truth emerged—she was carrying Brymo.

Reflecting on this tumultuous journey, Brymo remarked, “The story surrounding my birth and the entire family is weird. There are always mysteries.”

He went on to describe the relentless efforts of his parents to navigate through traditional healers, doctors, pastors, and imams.

He said: “The story surrounding my birth and the entire family is weird. There are always mysteries.

“There is a story of my mum, she had a traumatic experience, a sexual experience as a teenage girl. It was a rape incident. And for some weird reason, she didn’t see her period anymore afterward. And that kept on like that for three years or so till she met my dad.

“While they were taking her around herbalists and doctors, and pastors and imams, wherever they could go, so she could start bleeding, a woman needed to see her period before she could get pregnant, well, it happened that she was already pregnant, five months in and there was no blood. So, that was strange, right? I had to kick for her to know that a child was there.

“While everyone was giving her medicine to drink, they were trying to force an abortion without knowing [laughs].”
