Wizkid is a legend – Rema opens up on the influence he has on him

Mavin Records singer, Rema has revealed that Wizkid is one of the legends who inspired him in his music career.

This was after a fan asked during a question and answer session: “Does Wizkid inspire you? Do you like his sound?”

Rema replied: “A Legend, yes. Many legends have inspired this generation and part of our goal is to inspire the next. It’s the only way our legacy can be preserved.”

Rema also gave an advice to broke guys: “Change your mindset, change the laws that guide this realm, Watch your friends, believe in your vision, listen more, mind your business, sow your seeds, prepare for sacrifices to be made, stay patient, and most of all, act a fool and pray.”

Revealing how he deals with negative side talks in the music industry, Rema said: “The son of God was crucified even after the love he showed the people of this world. It didn’t stop him from fulfilling his promise. In fact, it was part of the purpose today that his legacy remains. Our new generation’s crucifixion takes place on the internet or in the gatherings of many men with envy in disguise. That won’t stop me from fulfilling my purpose.

“I know of many legends who swarm in the rivers of love only to be hated today because of the life they lived behind closed doors. Fame can not make me pose on social media to be who I’m not just to be loved. I grew up different and it shared my personality for I will not succumb to the will of men for there will be no happiness to feed their thirst. We all sin but fame has made us even more vulnerable to the extent that sinners now count our sins, I guess it’s part of the price.”

The singer was also asked if he has ever had a girlfriend.

“Yes, didn’t deserve her”, he said.
