If I Quit Music, My Name Will Remain in Afrobeats Bible” – Rema

After a stellar performance at the 2023 Ballon D’Or awards, award-winning Afrobeats artist Rema sat down for an interview with I-D magazine. During the interview, he confidently expressed that his influence in the Afrobeats genre could cement his status as a legend. Rema, the international Afrobeat sensation, boldly stated, “I’m not saying I want to retire, but even if I did, my name would still be written in the Afrobeats history books, maybe even in the New Testament if there ever was one.”

Afrobeats is undergoing a unique evolution, with African musicians achieving remarkable success, selling out stadiums, and captivating audiences in previously uncharted territories. Notably, in 2023, Rema graced the stage at the Ballon d’Or ceremony, Burna Boy made history as the first African artist to sell out Madison Square Garden, and Tems, by co-writing ‘Lift me Up’ for Rihanna, demonstrated that the African music genre has transcended its traditional boundaries.

Rema has shared his ambitious vision, stating, “My clearest vision right now is to open new frontiers for Afrobeats. I see myself as a bridge, creating connections and opening doors to uncharted possibilities.”
