Born in Ughelli, Delta State, Brume first emerged at national level at the 2012 with former junior athletes Dakolo Emmanuel Junos and Febian Edoki Nigerian Athletics Championships. She placed sixth in the long jump, clearing over six metres. She also was the winner at the National Sports Festival. The following year she set a personal best of 6.53 m (21 ft 5 in) to place second nationally, behind Blessing Okagbare. She was one of the most successful athletes at the 2013 African Junior Athletics Championships: she won the long jump title, took silver in the triple jump, and was part of Nigeria's winning 4×100 metres relay team. She also placed fourth individually in the 100 metres.

In May 2014 she ran a 100 m best of 11.84 seconds then followed this with a long jump best and new African junior record of 6.60 m (21 ft 734 in) to win at the Warri Relays. She improved to 6.68 m (21 ft 1034 in) at the Nigerian Championships to win her first national title. She was chosen for the discipline at the 2014 World Junior Championships in Athletics but, having flown to Eugene, Oregon just a day before competing, she performed poorly and was bottom of the qualifying. The Nigerian junior women relay team also did not fare well, being eliminated in qualifying.

Just five days later, she represented Nigeria at the 2014 Commonwealth Games. Blessing Okagbare opted to compete in the sprints so Brume was Nigeria's sole entrant for the event. The 18-year-old excelled in the Commonwealth Games long jump, clearing 6.56 m (21 ft 614 in) in the final to win the gold medal. Brume dedicated her victory to Emmanuel Uduaghan, Delta State's governor who invested in track and field infrastructure and support in the region. Okagbare, who won a Commonwealth sprint double, was also a product of the system and Brume stated that she was inspired by the older athlete's achievements. As a result of her own medal feats, Brume was given an athletic scholarship to study in the United States, with local government support.
