Popular Nigerian singer and Marvin Records signee Rema believes he has achieved enough recognition to be considered for the Afrobeats Hall of Fame, even if he were to retire from music today.
Despite contemplating leaving the music industry, Rema‘s accomplishments have already solidified his legacy in the Afrobeats genre.
Notably, he was featured on the cover of the fourth edition of The New Wave issue of i-D Magazine, further highlighting his prominence and influence.
“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.”?
The young musician also recalled how he had been ridiculed by fans people because of his soundtrack which had Bollywood lilt to it when he gained prominence in 2019.
“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.
