Rema, a Nigerian award-winning artist, made a sly dig at his senior colleague, Burna Boy, at the just concluded Headies Awards.
Kemi Filani stated a few days ago that Burna Boy had enraged many Nigerians with his remarks on Afrobeats.
In an interview, the artist stated that 90 percent of Afrobeat songs lack real-life experience and depth.
According to him, many artists lack real-life experience, which explains why their songs lack depth.
He explained that in many of the songs, artists aren’t saying anything worthwhile and are only singing about the good life or having a great time, which mostly isn’t the case in real life.
While receiving his award, Rema took a shot at the singer for his disrespectful statement.
He stated that no matter what Burna Boy calls Afrobeats, they would all meet at Afrobeats award shows.
“Be it Afro Rave or Afro anything. We go all jam for Afrobeats award”.
