Afrobeats singer Divine Ikubor, popularly known as Rema, has criticized the Nigerian music industry for being dominated by “fake people.”

During the listening party for his sophomore album, ‘He Is,’ held in Lagos on Thursday night, the ‘Another Banger’ singer discussed how the industry’s insincerity inspired one of the album’s tracks, ‘Now I Know.’

Rema stated, “There are a lot of fake people in the [music] industry, the industry is fake. So when people come and say ‘Yo, I love this guy,’ nobody should come at them that they’re chasing clout. No, it’s real.”

He elaborated, “When somebody comes out it’s because they’ve seen someone that’s real among everybody in the crazy industry mixed with both the fake and the real. And that’s what this song [‘Now I Know’] is all about. Now I know who dey for me. All those I loved turned enemies. Now I know who dey for me. All those I trust turned enemies.”
