Controversial Twitter personality, Daniel Regha, has once again sparked a heated debate on social media by comparing two up-and-coming Nigerian singers, Rema and Asake.
Regha did not shy away from expressing his opinion, firmly stating that Asake holds a more significant position in the music industry than Rema.
However, Regha acknowledged that the surge in Rema’s popularity can be attributed to the effective public relations strategies employed by Marvin’s Records, the record label led by the influential Don Jazzy.
Despite recognizing the impact of PR tactics, Regha argued that Asake’s artistic prowess surpasses that of Rema.
In a detailed analysis of the two artists’ musical compositions, Daniel Regha asserted that Asake’s songs possess deeper meanings compared to Rema’s, which he believes often rely on recycled lyrics.
While drawing distinct comparisons between the two, Regha emphasized that both artists are still in the early stages of their careers.
Regha concluded his tweet with the statement “no shades,” clarifying that his intention was not to disparage either artist.
Instead, he aimed to initiate a constructive discussion around the contrasting styles and influences shaping the careers of Asake and Rema.
“Asake is a bigger artiste than Rema, but Rema gets better PR thanks to Don Jazzy’s influence & that of Mavin Records. Lyrically speaking Asake has more meaningful songs; Rema 99% of the time recycles lyrics. The only thing they have in common is that both are still upcomers, that’s all. No shades,” Regha wrote.
