Nigerian singer, Olawale Ashimi, popularly known as Brymo, shocked Internet users on Wednesday after he went nearly nude in his new video titled, Heya.

The afro-soul song is the lead single from his sixth album, Oṣó, a Yoruba word for wizard.

In the video, Brymo, almost stark naked, emerges from the water and is seen walking around with nothing but a loincloth covering his groin area.

Recorded under a bridge in Lagos Island, the video captures the beauty of the lagoon city in its ruggedness.

This comes at a time when only a few Nigerian singers are not willing to push the boundaries music-wise.

Mixed reactions have trailed Brymo’s latest move with some criticising him.

Brymo began recording music in 1999, while in secondary school. He signed a record deal with Chocolate City in 2010, but breached his contractual agreement with the label in 2013.
