Rema boasts: Even if I stop singing today, my name will still be in Afrobeats Hall of Fame
Rema was on the cover of the fourth edition of i-D Magazine’s The New Wave issue.
“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.”
When the young artist rose to notoriety in 2019, he was mocked by fans and peers for his soundtrack, which had a Bollywood tinge to it.
“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,” he added.
