Stop Fleeing From Africa, Embrace And Build The Continent – Brymo



Nigerian singer, Brymo has come out to address those fleeing from Africa.

He recently revealed that even if traveling is heaven, Africans who always love to abandon the continent should remember that “only people on the African continent called ‘Afrikaners’ are largely non-black South Africans who were originally Dutch.”

According to him, it is a good thing that we have other Afrikaners who are embracing and building what other Africans are ashamed of.

He added that even if it is great to explore other nations from time to time, home will always be home.

His words, “Travelling is heaven, but if you feel the urge to ditch this shithole remember that the only people on the African continent called ‘Afrikaners’ are largely none black south Africans who were originally Dutch!!..someone else is embracing and building what you are ashamed of.”
