Rema Overcame Hardship To Become Successful – DJ Exprezioni


Dare Olufowobi, better known as DJ Exprezioni, an award-winning recording artist, disc jockey, and record producer, has offered some advice to up-and-coming artists.

The disc jockey suggested that an artist must be consistent, diligent, and fearless in order to flourish in the Nigerian music industry.

The DJ used Rema, a Mavin Records signee, as an example, noting that despite the traumas in his life, the young guy has not only become successful in the music industry but also a serious contender.

DJ Exprezioni, who has collaborated with well-known artists such as Niniola and Sarz, among others, said, 

“The industry is saturated with a lot of talent, to be seen and recognized among the many, you have to be really brave and put in the hard work.

“People see Rema and other young artists who are currently dominating the industry and think that they were lucky to be chosen by the industry bigwigs. 

“What they don’t know is that many of these rave-of-the-moment artists started cultivating their talent from way back.

“Rema used to perform in his church, formed a boy band and even with the many tragedies that plagued him, kept on pushing his music thing. 

“He found fame thanks to the cover he did of D Prince’s song and someone will see that and think, it’s also going to be the same thing for him. 

“But what that person fails to realize is that Rema had been doing a lot of covers before then. He was consistent.” 

In September 2020, Rema recounted with his fans how he climbed to popularity in a series of tweets, dispelling claims that his path to fame was a bed of roses.

The musician mentioned his father’s murder and how his family’s life had turned for the worse when sharing his mind on Twitter.

Part of his tweet stated, “Niggas don’t wanna see a kid win, they feel I got it too easy. 

“I shower with my sweat, we go off on this side like the days in BENIN it got nun to do with my deal, come and sign these papers without a hustler spirit, you gone lose! Management went to change my password now lol. 

“Eric, Sorry I stole your Laptop in 2017, I know you were trying to help me. My Mom had a child on the way, I was the only man in my family. 

“They made fun of her because she got pregnant, I wanted to prove them wrong bro, I had to do it. 

“When my late brother did house parties y’all came when he died only 2 friends stood beside his deathbed. 

“That’s why I’m not comfortable around people, they love me because I have something to offer, You know yourselves don’t let me catch you!!!”(sic) 

Real-life events inspire us to keep pushing until we achieve our goals and be better at it.
