Rema The Fader Winter Issue OnoBello (8)

If you’re the kind of person who is glued to Twitter most of the day and night, there’s a very good chance you caught Rema‘s latest epic Twitter rant that began Monday afternoon but was ignited by drama from last night.

When he wasn’t talking about his personal struggles, the music star let loose on a variety of topics, including his haters, detractors, theft, disrespect in the Nigerian music industry and so forth.

This shocking explosion comes after the events of BBNaija Lockdown Finale which saw Laycon win N85 million’s worth of prizes. According to circulating reports, Rema who performed alongside acts like Fireboy, Davido, Mayorkun was disrespected at the event.

While many social media users believe the fast-rising singer was slapped, an eyewitness told Pulse Nigeria that it was a rift between Davido’s camp and Rema.

While things didn’t really boil over beyond control, I do know that words were said and disrespect was involved. It looked like members of Davido’s camp felt disrespected by Rema and Rema in turn felt disrespected.” the source said.

The claim is also corroborated by Dremo’s tweet, “That teddy bear is rude lol #bbnaijalockdown2020.” For those who don’t know Rema’s brand is associated with the stuffed animal which he is usually seen with during his live performances or music videos.

Taking to Twitter, The Mavin Records signee began by calling out his haters, recalling the challenges he had to face before making his breakout stardom. Niggas don’t wanna see a kid win, they feel I got it too easy. I shower with my sweat, we go off on this side like the days in BENIN it got nun to do with my deal, come and sign these papers without a hustler spirit, you gone lose! Management gone change my password now lol,” he wrote.

He continued, “I climbed this cliff with bunch of rejected beats. Some niggas hate me because of that. When we in the same room together don’t label me proud or rude because I don’t smile, talk or laugh to your jokes. I protect my spirit and my flesh, whatever scar I die with my reborn shall possess.”

He then when ahead to thank former US president Barack Obama for including his chart-topping hit in his famous 2020 playlist. He wrote, “Thank you OBAMA for seeing what I saw in Ironman, lot of niggas couldn’t. I was 18 when I made that song, the beat got 6 sounds. I’ll give that simple beat to half the game and I won’t get a record as strong as IRONMAN.”

The ‘Woman’ singer continued about his haters, saying “Niggas feel I’m disrespectful, they want me to alert them before I drop. I done made millions before this fame, let no man feel this money changing me.”

He added, “I told D’prince sir I’m making money where I’m at I think I’m good. D’prince said to me stop what you’re doing and come to me boy “you’re the chosen one”, this music shit is gonna pay if you trust me!

“I done did Melodies that never existed in this world, go listen to my records. I swear them engineers thought I was crazy when I say turn off the auto tune. To the girl who rejected me before this fame, I’m eating the royalties off this pain. (WHY)

Ozedikus took risks for me, he was under a management with guidelines. He sneaked beats to me so I could record when my first engineer left me because we couldn’t pay him at the time. All the beats Ozedikus sneaked are now HITS.”

In a follow up tweet, Rema discusses events surrounding a 2017 theft incident for which he tendered an apology while stating the reason why he did it. “Eric, Sorry I stole your Laptop in 2017, I know you were trying to help me. My Mom had a child on the way, I was the only man in my family. They made fun of her because she got pregnant, I wanted to prove them wrong bro, I had to do it,” he shared.

He also talked about the passing of his brother and called on other emerging musicians to become genuine friends. “When my late brother did house parties y’all came, when he died only 2 friends stood beside his death bed. That’s why I’m not comfortable around people, they love me because I have something to offer, You know yourselves don’t let me catch you!!!

“Dear new generation artists, let’s be friends genuinely, don’t let this people forcefully make us friends just to prove healthy competition and make us enemies for their own entertainment. I swear I love y’all.

“Stop trying to change my password!!! I’m not excited to be here, I’m SUPPOSE to be here. The game handpicked me that’s why I said “ANOTHER BAGER”!!! on my first track.

“Mom don’t need my money, she just wanna be happy. She said invest so your children don’t suffer like you did,” he wrote.

He also briefly spoke about his mom and approach to music which apparently offend his haters. “Niggas label my music rubbish because I infuse my Edo language. Because I didn’t follow the usual guidelines to music, because I hacked Afrobeats with God given melodies, they called it ‘Indian’ because they DO NOT UNDERSTAND ME. I’m not of this world, know this now! 
 
Rema continued about the music industry, saying, “My first show was 6 zeros, the second month of my arrival into the game, ask the INDUSTRY. I performed with a mask on, because I came into the game with an unannounced EP like the thief in the NIGHT. Bet some of y’all niggas thought it was for fashion. Pathetic.

Promoters, I have visions for all y’all shows but sometimes y’all limit me. It’s not really about the cash, You don’t let me bring my vision to life even when I wanna pay for it, talkin bout ‘your stage is not strong’ my generation wanna RAVE!!! start building STRONGER STAGES.”

In the same breath, he chimed in on Federal Government and their absurd laws while calling for people to push on them. “I bet y’all don’t know that the Nigerian government signed a new Law enabling the police to arrest and search your phones without warrant. THE TWITTER TRENDS ARE NOT ENOUGH, MY GENERATION WAKE UP!!!”

“You no fit kill who don die before. My teddy bear is my best friend, he doesn’t talk, so he can’t judge me. Humans judge people, I don’t like humans, sometimes. Ravers they trying to deactivate my acc. Fight for me while I’m away, love y’all,” the superstar concluded his rant.
