Popular Nigerian singer Rema recently did a question and answer session with fans on his Instagram page.
During the session which was held on Tuesday, May, 19, 2020, Rema answered a few questions ranging from his perception of fellow singer, wizkid, advice to broke guys, how he handles criticism in the industry, and his love life.
Here’s how it went down:
The first question posed to the Dumebi crooner was about Wizkid. The fan asked: “Does Wizkid inspire you? Do you like his sound?”
Replying back, Rema said that: “A Legend, yes. Many legends have inspired this generation and part of our goal is to inspire the next. It’s the only way our legacy can be preserved.”
The second one chipped in: “what’s your advice to broke niggas?”
Rema replied by saying: “Change your mindset, change the laws that guide this realm, Watch your friends, believe in your vision, listen more, mind your business, sow your seeds, prepare for sacrifices to be made, stay patient, and most of all, act a fool and pray.”
The third required to know his take on dealing with negative side talks. Rema’s response regarding criticism was long, detailed and beyond secular.
“The son of God was crucified even after the love he showed the people of this world. It didn’t stop him from fulfilling his promise. In fact, it was part of the purpose today that his legacy remains. Our new generation’s crucifixion takes place on the internet or in the gatherings of many men with envy in disguise. That won’t stop me from fulfilling my purpose.
“I know of many legends who swarm in the rivers of love only to be hated today because of the life they lived behind closed doors. Fame can not make me pose on social media to be who I’m not just to be loved. I grew up different and it shared my personality for I will not succumb to the will of men for there will be no happiness to feed their thirst. We all sin but fame has made us even more vulnerable to the extent that sinners now count our sins, I guess it’s part of the price.”
Expectedly, When a fan asked the 20-year-old if he has ever had a girlfriend, Rema replied that he has, but he didn’t deserve her.
