Rema has come to fill a unique space in the Nigerian music industry, and it seems as though he’s here to cater specifically to teenagers like him. The latest confirmation is the music video for his smash hit, “Dumebi”, where the 18-year-old makes being a Nigerian teenager look lit.
Earlier on in the year, when Mavin Records introduced us to the young star, he immediately hit the ground running with his eponymous 4-track EP, which housed the banger, “Dumebi”. The song has enjoyed rave reviews since the project’s release, thrusting Rema right into the spotlight.
For the Ademola Falomo-directed video, Rema embarks on a camping trip with a bunch of his friends. The clip starts off with the girl of Rema’s dreams ignoring him while he pines after her in the corner, before his mind takes him to an otherworldly setting where she’s his girl.

Meanwhile, for those who’re yet to know who Rema is;
REMA is a 18-year-old rap act whose real is Divine Ikubor.
He grew up in Benin city into a Christian family. REMA lived his early life in Benin city rapping in church and school at a tender age.
While still in school, he moved on to create his own live band and not so long until he was discovered by D’Prince the Jonzingworld record boss who is Don Jazzy’s biological brother.
According to D’Prince “When I first heard Rema’s work I knew this was an artist I wanted the entire world listening to; his talent and artistry are so far beyond his years.”
D’PRINCE moves to discover more artists alongside Mavin Global. He says this will be people with exceptional talents like him.
According to Don Jazzy Mavin boss “Rema is a formidable young artist: with his skill and versatility, he has a unique place in the future of Afro beats. At the same time, we’re excited to launch our first imprint deal with Jonzing World” he revealed. This model will expand the number of ways the Mavin platform can support artists and entrepreneurship in Africa to grow together, at home and internationally,” he stated.
