Award-winning Nigerian singer, Divine Ikubor professionally known as Rema throws shade at Burnaboy and others who have berated the genre, Afrobeats as he delivers his award acceptance speech.
Yesterday, “Calm Down” crooner, Rema raises the bar to the topmost level as he wins African artiste of the year at the Headies Award.
The 16th Headies Award was held yesterday, September 3rd 2023 at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre in Atlanta, Georgia.
Rema beats the likes of Burna Boy (Nigeria) Marwa Loud (Morocco) Black Sherif (Ghana) Diamond Platnumz (Tanzania) to the African Artiste of the Year Award.
However, Rema left many gushing at his award acceptance speech as he delivered one of the best speeches by any artistes at the Headies Award.
Reacting to other African artistes berating Afrobeats by creating their own genre, Rema said that at the end of the day, they will all meet at the Afrobeats Award.
He further concluded that he is not at the 16th Headies Award because of the given to him rather he is at the award to show his support to the community of Afrobeat.
