Rema, as it should be known by now, is undoubtedly one of the more gifted and thriving young acts in the country. Ever since the Benin City native was signed to Don Jazzy’s Mavin Records, he has gone from strength to strength, releasing an EP “Iron Man”, which features the smash hit “Dumebi”.
The massive song has seen him get public recognition from industry veterans such as Davido and Wizkid, who Rema has frequently been compared to, even as the new kid maintains that his style is his.
The video for “Dumebi” has been released. Directed by budding sensation Ademola Falomo, it is youth-inspired aesthetics which plays at the classic theme of unrequited love. Rema joins four friends on a camping trip, a group that includes a girl he’s in love with. Sadly for him, the group also includes her boyfriend. Rema “shoots his shot” at every chance, but is thwarted at every turn.
