One Parker Ojugo wrote, “Rema wey sing calm down no gree. Calm down last last he no wan gree for anyone

One Bezo Yello Salon wrote, “You can always manage situations. Remember there was a time you prayed for times like this, they didn’t do it on purpose

One Emy Joe Art wrote, “This body don get pride

This isn’t the first time Rema has walked off stage. Last year, Rema abruptly ended his show and walked off the stage in anger during his performance in Atlanta due to the venue’s unsatisfactory conditions.

In a viral video on social media, the singer

got onstage and performed just two songs with the audience, then angrily left the stage.

Addressing his fans before walking off the stage, the singer apologized to his audience and promised to reschedule his show in Atlanta as he expressed his discomfort with the heat inside the venue.

Voicing out his grievances, Rema stated that the show organizers had shown disrespect not just towards him but also towards Afrobeats as a genre.

Similarly, fast-rising singer Asake had abandoned his show and walked away during a concert in Baltimore, Maryland, in the U.S., after his security guard’s gun was stolen.

Before the gun was stolen, Asake was reported to have arrived late for his show and had only performed for 10 minutes when his security guard’s gun went missing.

The singer felt the incident could be part of a plot to attack him and quickly ran away from the event.
