“I Never Thought A Nigerian Artiste Could Make Top 5 In America” – Afrobeat Singer, Davido Hails Rema

The superstar Afrobeat singer, Davido Adeleke gushes over the achievement of his junior colleague, Rema, in the United States of America.

During a recent interview on UAE’s #1 Music Station The Kris Fade Show, O.B.O, as widely called by fans expressed shock at how ‘Calm Down‘ by Rema held it down on U.S. charts.

Davido stated that it beat his imagination that Afrobeat has grown globally and that he’s proud to see stars like Rema killing it across the globe.

“Years ago, I never thought a Nigerian artiste would have a Top 5 record in America. Rema has had Top 5 records in America for the past eight months, non-shaken,” he stated.

It is worth noting that Rema’s ‘Calm Down’ and its remix featuring Selena Gomez recently achieved a new feat as the first Nigerian song to stay a year on U.S. Billboard.
