Nigerian Afrobeats sensation, Divine Ikubor, popularly known as Rema, recently made a significant revelation about his motivation for making music. Contrary to the common belief that many artists venture into the music industry for financial gains, Rema clarified that money was not the driving force behind his musical journey.
In a candid interview with Korty EO, Rema shared insights into his mindset and passion for music. He mentioned that even before achieving mainstream success, he was financially stable. The talented singer emphasized that he was already doing well financially while creating freestyles and sharing them on various social media platforms.
Rema made it clear that if music hadn’t worked out for him, he would have been engaged in other hustles to make a living. He mentioned, “If music didn’t work, I will still be pushing that p in the corner while hustling, you understand.”
“Even at that point where I was doing freestyles, I didn’t really need to do a freestyle because I needed money. I had money. I was actually good.”
