I’ve carried Benin City on my back – Rema highlights contribution

Afrobeats musician, Divine Ikubor, popularly addressed as Rema, has disclosed that with his breakthrough in the music industry, he plans to give back to youths.

The ‘Calm Down’ crooner stated this when he was hosted to lunch on Friday by Governor Godwin Obaseki at the Government House in Benin City, Edo State.

The singer revealed that while he was performing on the global stage, he was able to carry Benin on his back and export the culture through his artistic works.

Rema went on to thank the people of Edo State for being supportive throughout his musical journey, and he commended the governor for caring for young people in the state.

He said: “This is the time to do something for youths. I just want to do things. I have been able to make a breakthrough in the music industry. I went out there to perform on the global stage and took Benin City with me. I carried the city on my back and on my shoulders and expressed my culture in the best way I could.

“The government will make moves and it is also time for the youths to make moves, re-educate themselves, ready to accept new rules for the betterment of the community and for the evolution of the entertainment industry as well.

“The lunch was great and we spoke about a lot of important things, especially his programme for the young people. It’s very beautiful to see a governor who cares for the future. He does not only have a vision for his tenure but beyond the eight-year period.”
