Rema is no longer competing for top 3 - OAP Gucci Augustus Aigbe

In a chat with Legit.ng, Gucci said Rema is on the same radar as Wizkid, Davido and Burna Boy if not way ahead.

On the singer cementing his position on top in the music industry just a few years after his discovery, the media personality is of the opinion that the singer's competitors are no longer his local colleagues.

In his words:

"Rema does not need to squeeze into the top 3 like a sardine. He is just as Global as all 3 (Wizkid, Burna, Davido). Even more, because he is younger and appeals to a younger audience. His unplanned collaboration with Selena Gomez has cemented his name as the biggest African popstar right now in the global space. Rema isn’t competing with Burna and Davido No! Rema is going Neck and Neck with Selena Gomez and Taylor swift. This is not a reach, when in doubt check his numbers."

Legit.ng earlier reported that in an interview, the singer revealed he was aware of the history and name he had made for himself.

Rema said being different was unfamiliar with the Nigerian music scene, and some people characterised his sound as Indian.

On his impact on Afrobeat as a genre, the 23-year-old said he was aware of the history he was making and the influence he has had since he entered the music scene. He said history can't be written without him.
