MAVIN/Jonzing wonderkid and the Dumebi crooner, Rema has pleaded with his fans and Nigerians in general to stop comparing him with top artistes he looks up and respects in the music industry as he does not find that cool.
The singer, in a tweet, stated that afrobeats is a movement whose growth requires the support and unity of all not comparison.
In Rema’s words, “My win is YOUR win, Afrobeat is a movement & we need all the support we can get. The comparisons between me & my heroes are unnecessary, let’s stop bringing down our own. Let’s celebrate where Afrobeat is at today and focus on where it will be tomorrow, God bless you all.“
