Benin fan of Rema defends singer, explains history behind “demonic” mask



A Benin fan of Nigerian singer Rema has defended the controversial “demonic” mask worn by the singer during his 02 Arena performance.

Rema, who broke the record for being the youngest Nigerian artist to close down the prestigious venue, created a stir with some bizarre imagery he used during the show.

Following the event, some internet users linked the Calm Down star to the Illuminati secret society due to the strange activities that went on on the stage.

One of the most talked-about aspects of Rema’s show was the demonic-looking facial mask he wore when he made a grand entrance on a sculptured horse.

Despite the various claims linking Rema to demonic activities, netizens in his hometown of Benin, Edo State, have taken to social media to defend him. They revealed that the mask Rema wore on the show was inspired by Queen Idia, a hero in the Benin Kingdom.

On X, formerly Twitter, an account with the handle Edocentric_ wrote: “Queen Idia Mask/REMA isn’t demonic; as a matter of fact, she is a national hero to Nigeria and the Benin Kingdom. She lived in the 15th century. She was the first Edo woman to go to war. She defeated a giant for a son to become king She was the first queen mother in Benin.”
