‘There Are Lots Of Fake People In Music Industry’ – Rema


Afrobeats singer, Divine Ikubor, aka Rema, has said that the Nigerian music industry is dominated by “fake people.”

Speaking at the listening party of his sophomore album, ‘He Is,’ in Lagos on Thursday night, the ‘Another Banger’ crooner explained that the “fake” nature of the Nigerian music industry inspired one of the songs on the album ‘Now I Know.’

Rema 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 Thursday via Mavin Records, with guest features from Shallipopi and Odumodublvck
