The presence of the Nigerian music industry globally continues to grow, and proof of this growth is a recent video that was seen online of a stadium packed with fans in Qatar singing and vibing to Rema’s song, Calm Down.
The audience could be loudly heard and seen responding to the song, as almost the entire stadium seemed to be at a fan fest for the Mavin record label artist.
Recall that we reported some weeks back that singer Kizz Danial and his colleague Patoranking were invited to the FIFA Fans Festival celebration. It was a super display of Afrobeat at its best.
Rema is one of his generation’s fastest-rising young Afrobeat musicians; to touch on Divine’s international recognition over the last 3-years, at least one of his tracks has consistently featured on former US president Barack Obama’s yearly music playlist.
Below is the video:
