If I stop singing today, my name will still be in Afrobeats ‘Hall of Fame’ – Rema

Multi award-winning singer, Divine Ikubor, also known as Rema is of the opinion that he has already done a lot to earn himself a spot in Afrobeats Hall of Fame.

He said he isn’t contemplating quitting music anytime soon but if he chooses to stop right now, his name would still to “be on the Afrobeats bible”.

Rema stated this in a recently published article while covering the fourth edition of The New Wave issue of i-D Magazine.

The 23-year-old said if there were an Afrobeats bible, he would be on the front page of the “New Testament.”

Rema said; “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”.

The ‘Calm Down’ crooner also reflected on how he was mocked because of his Bollywood-soundtrack-themed sound when he hit stardom in 2019 only for it to turn to a blessing years later.

“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 artiste to shut down four cities in India, 5000 capacity and above. No one can deny that I’ve impacted Afrobeats on a global scale,” he said.
