Rema’s debut album, ‘Rave & Roses’ has garnered 1 billion streams across all platforms, earning him a plague in honour of his achievement.
“This is for you, this belongs to you, you deserve. I want to say thank you for your love, for your support. Thank you so much for believing in my ideas, my crazy sound. First when I came out a lot of people laughed at me, they said I was too different, my sound was Indian. And now look at this boy!” Rema shared the goodnews online.
Divine Ikubor, 22, popularly known as Rema is a shining star in the new school of afrobeats. He first broke out in 2019 with his hit single, Dumebi.
Earlier this year, he released his debut album, Rave & Roses, which featured guest spots from AJ Tracey and 6lack.
He also has two spots on the soundtrack of the blockbuster film Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, and has sold out two nights at London’s Brixton Academy. On top of that, his single Calm Down continues its chart stronghold – bolstered by a remix that includes a surprising verse from Selena Gomez.
