Rema Reveals How He Switched From Gospel To Secular Music (Updated: Tuesday 26th April 2022, 05:40 AM)


Popular Nigerian singer, Rema, has disclosed how he made a transition from gospel to secular music so he could cater for his family.

He made this known during a talk show, Rubbin’ Minds show on Channels TV on Sunday.

According to him, the switch began when he started going to sing at bars and lounges just so he could make ends meet .

The Benin-born singer disclosed that before then, he was the head of a gospel rap group in his church.

He Said;

“I was still in Benin when that switch happened. A lot of people thought that when I got signed, I started deviating.

“No. Actually, life was tough in Benin. I’m not that guy to ask the people in church to pay me because I’m doing God’s work.

“Right there in Benin, I started going to competitions, going to bars, lounges, political rallies; just trying to get on the stage and hold a microphone, to at least get sprayed some money to come back home and feed my family, because we were going through tough times.

“I lost my father and brother and I needed to come through for my family. At that point in time, I felt like that’s where I started spacing out; little by little, until I just exiled.”

Rema revealed that the transition was weird for him and his mum but he was unable to convince the latter about his choice.

“It was weird for me and most especially for my mum because she was well known in church. I didn’t do any much explaining. I just told her to trust me.”
