Divine Ikubor, better known as Rema, a Nigerian artist, has disclosed that he earned his first million naira at the age of 17.
In a recent interview with Z100 New York, the Dumebi crooner revealed this.
He claimed to have given all of the money to his mother.
Rema said, “The person who I knew needed it more was my mum. So, I handed everything I made to her. I know it was cool to drive around the city as a 17-year-old in a cool whip. But I can’t drive a cool whip when my mum didn’t have a car or my mum has to borrow my keys. You know, I had to put her on first.
“Passing all of that to her, whatever investment she makes… I made my first million [naira] at 17 but I made more than a million. But it’s cool to be in that stage to be able to provide [for your family].”
The 24-year-old singer described his greatest accomplishment as being able to care for his family and open doors for others.
He said, “Someone created an opportunity for me to bless the world this much. So, I can’t imagine how much the people I helped are going to bless the world. You know, I go hard not just for myself. I go hard for them. As doors open for me, I wanna open doors for them.”
He added that his proudest moment was when fans sang his song ‘Calm Down’ word-for-word during his performance in Australia last year.
