“3 Years Later I Did It” Rema Is Overjoyed After Achieving His Three-Year Dream of Shutting Down India



Nigerian Afrobeats sensation, Divine Ikubor better known as Rema, has expressed joy at the fulfilment of a mission he set to accomplish three years ago.

He recently shutdown a major city in India as well as the concert venue where he held the first round of his ‘Rema Calm Down India Tour’.

Rema took to his Twitter page and shared a throwback video of him at an interview in 2020 where he talked about taking Afrobeats to India and leaving a mark.

“You see Afrobeats, I want to take it to the next level. I want us to get into the India zone. Why can’t we shut down India?” he said in the interview.

He was joyous that after three years, he was finally able to shutdown India and he thanked the country as well as those that believed in him.

The ‘Calm Down’ crooner tweeted; “3 years later I did it! Thank you India for your overwhelming love & my heart to those who BELIEVED. ✊🏾🇮🇳”

Rema’s first performance was in Delhi, while the next phase of his concert will be in Mumbai on Saturday, followed by a gig in Hyderabad on Sunday.

Meanwhile, the Mavin Records act told PTI in an interview that he loves Indian music and would love to collaborate with the Asian country’s artistes.

He said; “Indian music has very emotional vocals and I can keep listening to it. I’ve been playing a lot of Indian music since I landed in India… I love AR Rahman.

Back home we have a lot of love and respect for India and all of its creative talent. I want to produce a new sound that merges Afrobeats and Indian music, that’s the way forward.

“I had pretty garlands all around my neck, got someone to tie a turban on my head and put a red bindi on my forehead. Some dancers were performing to ‘Calm Down’ in their own Indian folk way. The love here in India is really huge and I am very excited to play for the audience here.”
