Rema Says He Got His Six-Packs Through Hardship
The musician had odd jobs before becoming well-known and recognized in the music business.

Divine Ikubor, better known as Rema, a Nigerian musician, has said that his chiseled six-pack abs resulted from adversity rather than regular exercises.
The artist revealed details about his physical growth path in an interview with Spotify.
The renowned musician from Benin City, Edo State, reminisced about his childhood in Benin City with his family.
Rema recalled carrying buckets of water at the time, a physically taxing chore that unwittingly contributed to his strong body.
He further emphasized that his stay in Ghana sculpted his body even more as he hustled and participated in tough sports.
“I don’t go to the gym. I always had my body patterns, way back since Benin, fetching water, carrying buckets of water, you know, wheelbarrows. When I was in Ghana when I was hustling, doing hard labour. I was already getting ripped out from whatever I was doing. You know, days that I starved, my packs just came out, like,” the singer shared during the interview.
Rema is a brilliant Nigerian singer, songwriter, and rapper who catapulted to prominence with his first single, Dumebi. He secured a record contract with Jonzing World, a subsidiary of Mavin Records, in 2019.
The artist recently hit a major milestone by headlining a performance in India. The Mavin singer, now on his much-anticipated Indian tour, expressed joy and appreciation for realizing his ambition.
Rema took to social media to upload a video of an old interview expressing his desire to build a name for himself in India’s music industry.
In the 2020 interview, he questioned why Nigerian singers were less successful in India than in Europe and America. Rema’s drive to push Afrobeats to new heights and conquer India was evident.
Three years after the interview, the 23-year-old musician, well known for his popular song Calm Down, achieved his lofty goal by selling out a show in Delhi, India.
