Young Nigerian musician, Divine Ikubor who is known as Rema launched his own genre, AFRORAVE not long ago.
This has garnered some reactions from Nigerians and many people are of the view that people who rubbished Rema’s style of music have buried their heads in shame.
Announcing the AFRORAVE genre, Rema wrote;
“My sound y’all called Indian, everybody doing it now.
From this day my sound will be called “Afrorave” a sub-genre of Afrobeat, my Album seals this claim for good.”
Read some reactions below;
@Abbye_ak – I can remember how Nigerians
mocked and trolled Rema when Dumebi dropped .
So many blogs carried it
Comedians used it as a bait. Non Nigerians and Africans believed and supported him. That was what kept him going!
Today, that Indian Sound is now Global
Afrorave to the world!!!
@JoeyAkan – I know Rema has not forgiven Nigerians for not properly classifying his sound, and denigrating it with the ‘Indian’ talk.
But he has to understand that he brought something new into the space, and we can only approximate it to what we can understand.
Forgive us all, Commando.
@TimUgah – Y’all trashed REMA and called him the only artist that sings like an Indian now he’s accepted it and branded it to he’s own genre and y’all are pissed? Lmao so suddenly REMA isn’t the only artist who has that sound this is pathetic and pure hatred
@MrSosabillz – Am a davido fan but rema is currently bigger and better than davido.
@thisjerryy – Rema is currently bigger and better than Wizkid I’m sorry fc i can no longer hide the truth
@Edesiri__ – Bro stop deceiving yourself. What you doing is still Afro fusion. Just because you sound a bit different doesn’t mean you’ve created a new genre.
@IyMayor – Boy remmy don’t listen to what all those haters are saying
Musically u are doing well
Pay less attention to haters and more to we that feel u…..
