The ‘Ara’ crooner in a post on his Instagram page shared a photo of himself filming with actor Deyemi Okanlowon.
Speaking on his role, Brymo said, “Being on the set of “The King’s Horseman” had me diving so deep in time that at the end of the shoot I was in a mild panic; “what will I do with my life now?”.. I can’t wait for you to meet my character – OLOHUN IYỌ. (The Praise Singer).”
Media mogul and filmmaker, Mo Abudu had earlier announced the commencement of the screen adaptation.
