Budding Nigerian singer, Divine Ikubor better known as Rema, has given credit to D’Prince for seeing something in him he never knew was there.
Rema, who is signed to Jonzing Records, said that he was into rap when his boss, D’Prince scouted him and gave him a record deal.
The ‘Calm Down’ crooner revealed that the singer and music executive convinced him to switch from rap music to Afrobeats.
He made this known while granting an interview on America’s Q 99.7 Atlanta FM.
According to him, when D’Prince asked him to adopt Afrobeats genre, he expressed reservations and stated that he is a rapper.
But the record label founder told Rema that he likes his voice and he felt that it would be appealing on Afrobeats.
He urged the Dumebi hitmaker to give it a try and when he did, he realised that D’Prince was right about him being a good fit for the genre.
Rema said; “D’Prince told me that he likes my voice, and he feels like I’m gonna sound really good on Afrobeats. I told him I don’t really do Afrobeat, I just rap, so he said ‘Give it a try’.”
