‘Nigeria Music Industry Is Fake’ – Rema

Afrobeats singer, Divine Ikubor, better known as Rema, has said that the Nigerian music industry is fake and dominated by fake people.

Melody news reports that the ‘Benin Boys’ crooner made this known at the listening party of his sophomore album, ‘He Is,’ in Lagos on Wednesday night.

Rema explained that the fake nature of the Nigerian music industry inspired one of the songs on the album ‘Now I Know.’

He said, “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’s 11-track sophomore album arrived on Wednesday via Mavin Records, with guest features from Shallipopi and Odumodublvck.
