We are sure, Rema isn’t losing sleep over it as days back, the Edo-born star made history as he performed at the Ballon d’Or award, which was held on Monday, October 30th in Paris, France.

The Afrobeat singer stole the spotlight with his show-stopping performance as he thrilled guests with a beautiful rendition of his chart-topping song, ‘Calm Down’.

His performance at Ballon D’or became a historic win for Nigeria, as the singer is the first Afrobeat artist to perform at the award ceremony.

Speaking on his influence in the music industry, Rema, while gracing the cover of I_d magazine stated that no one can deny that he has impacted Afrobeats on a global scale.

The Mavins couldn’t be wrong as the singer has put Nigerian on a big map. From performing in India to his top charting songs and making history as the first artist to perform at the Ballon d’Or award.

He had also addressed claims of being a member of the Illuminati, which stemmed from his signature bat emojis, by denying being a member of any secret cult.

Further defending himself, the Calm Down crooner added that he works too hard to create art for people to give the glory to diabolical shit. Rema surprised many as he declared love for God, crowning him the King.
