Rema: Even If I Stop Singing, My Name Will Still Be In Afrobeats Hall Of Fame

Notable singer, Divine Ikubor, popularly known as Rema, said he has already done a lot to earn himself a spot in Afrobeats Hall of Fame. The 23-year-old singer said he was not contemplating quitting music anytime soon but if he should stop even now, his name would still to “be on the Afrobeats ‘bible’. He said if there were an Afrobeats bible, he would be on the front page of the “New Testament.”

Rema was on the cover of the fourth edition of The New Wave issue of i-D Magazine. “I’m not saying I want to stop. But if I say I want to stop right now, my name is still going to be on the Afrobeats bible, if there is an Afrobeats bible to be dropped.

I’ll literally be in the New Testament, on the front page,” he said. The ‘Calm Down’ crooner also recounted how he was mocked because of his Bolly- wood-soundtrack-themed sound when he hit stardom in 2019. He said; “Everything they doubted, everything they laughed at me for, I built on it. They called me Indian Boy; I went to India.

I’m the first artist to shut down four cities in India, 5000 capacity and above. No one can deny that I’ve impacted Afrobeats on a global scale.” Only during the week, Rema also sang at the prestigious Ballon D’or event, an award night for best footballers in the world.
