Johnny Drille: Why Nigerians Don’t Give Rema Enough Credit

Sensational singer, Johnny Drille has said his colleagues and record label mate, Rema isn’t given enough credit for his impeccable contributions to the Nigerian music industry and beyond.

The ‘Believe Me’ crooner cited partiality as the reason Nigerians don’t treasure Rema despite all his musical achievements at a young age.

Speaking in a recent interview with The Beat 99.9 FM, Lagos, Johnny Drille said, “Not to be controversial or anything but if Rema was some other artistes, other big artistes in Nigeria, everyone would be screaming at their lungs like, ‘Hey! This person is breaking grounds..’

“And Rema for his age has done some really incredible things that I don’t think we give him enough credit for. I mean, he has literally one of the biggest songs not just in Africa but in the world with ‘Calm Down’ which has been on the Billboard Top 10 for almost a year. That has never been done in the history of African music. And he is having a lot of sold out shows all over the world.

“It just feels to me like he’s just getting started. We need to give the young man more credit.”
