Rema Is The Next Wizkid In Africa

Like it or not, Rema is here to stay. All the signs indicate that and depending on what deal he has with his label, Jonzing World and Mavins.

He’s got at least five years of being in the mainstream, even if things don’t pan out, the way we think they will. But that’s even the worst-case scenario. Now, let’s talk about the best.
It’s easy to sound like someone else, so much easy. Skales sounds like Wande Coal, Joe EL sounds like 2baba, Terri is a Reekado Banks soundalike. Oh, there’s more. Lyta can vibe like MayorkunSean Tizzle used to sound like DavidoT Classic sounds like Kizz Daniel, Fireboy DML sounds like Adekunle Gold and so on. 
But it’s just one thing to sound like an already popular artist, it’s another to actually exhibit the potential of that artist. Rema doesn’t only sound like Wizkid, he’s also demonstrated that he’s got what it takes, to stand on the best day.
If Rema goes on to win the Next Rated award at The Headies, this year, he’d have won the same major award Wizkid won. Only eight years after. That’s kind of the point, Wizkid has been here for so long.
Long enough we can start scouting for guys who can also give the industry joy like he did in the past. Guys, we can hold against a bar, guys we can actually criticize and assess, without sounding bitter. And for many years, we’ve been waiting for that someone, that young kid that will pop up with a shine like Wizkid’s, maybe bigger and disturb the industry.
