“If I Stop Music Today, My Name Will Be in Afrobeat Bible”: Rema Brags After Ballon d’Or Feat


Nigerian singer Rema is making history one beat and song at a time, and he knows his impact on Afrobeat as a genre.

In an interview on i-D’s The New Wave Issue, Rema talked about the feats he has pulled off and his aspirations for his career.

The singer also revealed that even if he decides to stop singing, Afrobeat history cannot be written without him.

“The energy was that they’d get it eventually. I took it as motivation, when you play a video game and you see the bad guys shooting at you, you know that’s the right way. 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.”
