He may be known as Remy Boy but his achievements have placed him in the league of music greats as below.
New-age Afrobeats ambassador and Mavin Records top act, Rema has set a new record in Africa, beating music greats like Wizkid, Burna Boy and others from the continent by so doing.
The Raves and Roses creator notched this feat by becoming the most listened African act on Spotify for the month of September with 18.9 million monthly listeners. This new height comes on the heels of Rema’s Calm Down remix with Selena Gomez. The record which currently sits at 30 million streams has contributed to a bump in the singer’s numbers. The glory however goes to the original version of Calm Down which currently has 121 million streams.
Recall that last year September, Tems had achieved a similar feat with 11 million monthly listeners to emerge as the most listened to African act on Spotify. Currently, Rema is seconded by Burna Boy by a slim difference at 18.8 million monthly listeners while Tems ranks as the third most listened with 15.4 million listeners and Wizkid comes right after with 8.4 million listeners.
