“Life is Not Easy as a Young Boy” Rema Spoke Out


Divine Ikubor, the Mavin Records-signed Nigerian singer who is better known as Rema, has recounted how things became tough for him after he lost his father and elder brother.

The talented singer gave the narration during a chat with Manny Norte on Capital Xtra, where he spoke majorly on his background and foray into music.

According to the ‘Bad Commando’ crooner, the loss of his dad and his brother brought an untold pressure on him to cater for his mother.

He added that he had to summon courage to brace the odds by taking up different jobs, including working at a beach in Ghana just to raise money.

Rema said that such tumultuous experiences in the past have significantly shaped his music career while also inspiring him to do more.

He attributed his success to his mother’s support, adding that such has kept him moving. He also said such support informed his decision to buy her an SUV while he was just 17 out of his savings.
