Talented singer Johnny Drille has voiced his opinion on the lack of recognition for his colleague and fellow label mate, Rema, for his remarkable contributions to the Nigerian music industry and beyond.

The artist behind ‘Believe Me’ attributed this oversight to bias, suggesting that Nigerians fail to fully appreciate Rema despite his impressive musical achievements at such a young age.

In a recent interview with The Beat 99.9 FM in Lagos, Johnny Drille expressed his viewpoint, saying, “Not to be controversial or anything, but if Rema were some other artist, some of the big names in Nigeria, everyone would be shouting from the rooftops, saying, ‘Hey! This person is breaking new ground…’

“Rema, given his age, has accomplished some truly remarkable feats that, in my opinion, do not receive the credit they deserve. I mean, he has one of the biggest songs, not just in Africa, but in the entire world with ‘Calm Down,’ which has been on the Billboard Top 10 for almost a year. This is unprecedented in the history of African music. He’s also selling out shows worldwide.

“It just seems to me that he’s just getting started, and we should give this young man the recognition he deserves.”
