“I Will Still Be Making Money If Music Didn’t Work” – Rema
Nigerian singer Divine Ikubor, popularly known as Rema, has claimed he would still be making money if music wasn’t working for him.
Rema claimed in an interview with Korty EO that, prior to Don Jazzy, the head of the Mavin Record Label, discovering him, he was financially secure even while performing freestyles and posting on social media.
The ‘Calm Down’ crooner said he wasn’t doing the freestyles because of the financial benefits.
He added he would still hustle and make money if music didn’t work.
He said, “If music didn’t work, I will still be pushing that p in the corner while hustling, you understand?
“Even at that point where I was doing freestyles, I didn’t really need to do a freestyle because I needed money. I had money. I was actually good.”
Meanwhile, Rema has told his colleagues that irrespective of their music styles, they will all still come together under the Afrobeats umbrella for award shows.
Rema stated this while receiving his award for Best Male Artiste of the Year at the 2023 Headies Awards in Atlanta, USA, on Sunday.
