This unconventional album title and artwork has been causing quite a stir on the social media with popular Nigerian artiste Olamide badoo, commenting on the album title and art on Twitter.
The album Klitoris is said to be a reflection of Brymo’s thoughts, imagination and philosophy, and was created by an American artist Georgi Georgiev of Moonring Art Design. Brymo in his words explained: “Klitoris is a Greek word for 'key'. It is where the word 'clitoris' itself originates. This album is the key to a certain door I have knocked on for years,” he told TheNetNg.
“It is art, some might find it to be creepy, but it is just art. On the original artwork you could see all of the woman’s breasts. An edit was done by Duks here in Lagos after iTunes refused to put it up on the grounds that it’s pornography. The artwork is an expression of how I love and how I am unsure of the woman, all at the same time,” he said.
