How fake people in music industry inspired my song – Rema

Superstar Afrobeats singer Divine Ikubor, also known as Rema, emphasizes that the Nigerian music industry is filled with ‘fake people’ and how it inspired his song.

The international star made this known while speaking at the listening party for his second album, ‘He Is,’ in Lagos on Thursday night.


‘Another Banger’ hitmaker explained that the “fake” nature of the industry inspired one of the songs on the album, ‘Now I Know.’

In his words,

“There are a lot of fake people in the [music] industry, the industry is fake. So when people come and say ‘Yo, I love this guy,’ nobody should come at them that they’re chasing clout. No, it’s real.

“When somebody comes out it’s because they’ve seen someone that’s real among everybody in the crazy industry mixed with both the fake and the real. And that’s what this song [‘Now I Know] is all about. Now I know who dey for me. All those I loved turned enemies. Now I know who dey for me. All those I trust turned enemies,” Rema stated.

Rema’s 11-track second album was released on Thursday through Mavin Records, featuring guest appearances from Shallipopi and Odumodublvck.
