Months ago, news circulated on the internet revealing that Crown Uzama, popularly known as Shallipopi, credited his colleague Divine Ikubor, famously known as Rema, for inspiring him and other young artists from Edo State to believe in their talents. Rema and Shallipopi were spotted in the studio, vibing to a new song set to be released soon.
This revelation has ignited hope among internet users, eagerly anticipating the magic and hit that is soon to drop.
During a recent interview on The Zero Conditions podcast, the Benin-born singer expressed how Rema, the ‘Calm Down' crooner, served as a beacon of hope for artists in Benin.
Meanwhile, Shallipopi emphasized that prior to Rema's rise, there was a prevailing lack of confidence among artists in Benin, with many believing that musical stardom was only attainable for those in Lagos and Abuja.
He stated, “In Benin, none of us had hope of breaking through. We left it for those in Lagos and Abuja. We saw everything, but we didn't have the hope that we could be in the spotlight.”
Rema's journey to stardom began with the allure of his freestyle videos on social media, catching the attention of D'Prince and ultimately leading to his signing with Mavin Records.
