“Rema is better than Olamide who has been consistent for 8 years” – Man reveals


A Twitter user has incurred the wraith of some angry netizens after he stated that fast-rising Mavin Records signee, Rema, is a bigger artiste than Olamide in the music industry.

While some described the comment as an insult on Olamide, others believe there is no basis for comparison between the two artistes who are miles apart.

18-year-old Rema won the Headies’ Next Rated Award a few weeks ago and since he came into limelight his fans have been rating him side by side with other A-list music artistes.

Olamide, a multi-award winning rapper, rose to stardom in 2010 with his ‘Eni Duro’ hit track and has been consistently dropping hit tracks and albums for over eight years. Bobo, Ilefo Illuminati, Abule Sowo, Wo, Science Student are some of his hit tracks that won him awards.

Aside from his consistency, he was also instrumental to the success of other stars like Adekunle Gold, Lil Kesh, Lyta among others who were all signed to his YBNL record label.

This is not the first time Rema’s fans would be sparking controversial debates on Twitter, from the moment he was signed by Mavins, a section of social media has been comparing him to Wizkid, saying he sings like Star Boy and may likely be the next big name to come out of Africa.

They backed their argument with claims that he also came into limelight at the same age Wizkid hit the Nigerian music industry like a whirlwind and has become one of the most successful artistes to come out of Africa.

Monday’s hot debate about Olamide and Rema was prompted by a tweet from a Twitter user who listed 10 Nigerian artistes he said he considers as legends in the music industry.

A user then suggested in the comment section that Davido listed in number six shouldn’t be above Olamide, another Twitter user who seems to be enraged by the comment then said “even Rema is bigger than him (Olamide),” and the war started.
