Fast-rising Nigerian singer, Rema, has taken to his Twitter page to respond to the criticism over his lyrics in his various songs.
According to some reactions, Rema is fond of using ‘difficult to understand’ words and which have also been blasted for sometimes, being “meaningless”.
In a tweet he sent out on Friday, the 20-year-old whose real name is Divine Ekubor, proclaimed that his lyrics, which he called his ‘Benin Lamba,’ are part of his Edo heritage which he will never be ashamed of celebrating.
“I’m a proud Edo boy, I’ll forever celebrate my culture, I no go shame to use my Benni lamba, they can call me crazy all they want because they don’t understand it but I will never box myself to please anybody. When I hear beat I must misbehave! get used to it,” he wrote.
