i-D meets Nigerian Singer-Songwriter - the artist behind Tik Tok’s viral Afrobeats song ‘Calm Down’ later remixed with Selena Gomez. He reflects on his whirlwind career thus far and how he plans to take the genre of ‘Afro-rave’ to a global audience. A self-confessed introvert, Rema holds great value to his alone time, something that helps him to, ‘glide through nothingness, just healing and recharging’. Sharing his musical inspirations ranging from Lana Del Rey and ASAP Rocky to the world of K-Pop, Rema welcomes i-D into his world through art and gaming. He touches on his appreciation for Benin City, the place where he grew up and his own introduction to music, filled with car journey’s spent flicking through his dad’s CD’s. His passion that was nurtured by teaching kids to rap and rhyme in church has already evolved to unimaginable platforms. Here, Rema tells i-D how he’s coming to terms with his new reality.
