Rema is conquering the world of music one step at a time and everyone is loving him for it. The young singer has seemingly gotten an endorsement from multiple Grammy award-winning rapper Drake.
This is after the latter took to Instagram to have a live session with his fans and he played songs. On his playlist was Rema’s smash hit song, “Dumebi.”
Drake didn’t stop at just playing Rema’s music to his fans but also gave the young Nigerian star a shoutout by telling fans that they have a “sick song together.”
Drake said: “Big up Rema too. We have a sick songs together…”
He then continued playing the song. This continues the strategic positioning that MAVIN Records has been commendably doing with Rema. During an Instagram Live, Drake also premiered a new song.

Rema who is signed to Mavin Records in a recent chat with Manny Norte of Capital Xtra spoke extensively about losing loved ones, his growing music career, dealing with fame and more.
Rema who lost his father and older brother within a short time of each other disclosed that he was under pressure to raise money for his “great mom.”
On losing his dad and brother, Rema says; “At some point things got hard and I had to man up…. I had to work hard because I lost my brother and my dad… I had to work hard.”
He added that he travelled to Ghana, worked on a beach and bought her a car.
His luck changed for the better when he made a freestyle to D’Prince’s ‘Gucci Gang.’ The freestyle got him the attention of MAVIN/Jonzing’s but he would be with Mavin Records for about 18 months before he was eventually signed to the label.
