Rema marks incredible 2023 with landmark O2 Arena concert.
In a year where he has recorded unprecedented international success for an African, Nigerian music sensation Rema sold out the O2 Arena as he announced himself on the storied stage that has serially commissioned the international ascension of Nigerian superstars.
November 14, 2023, marked a memorable day in Rema’s career. The superstar first announced himself in the Nigerian mainstream in 2019 with his eponymous EP which he followed up months later with the ‘Bad Commando’ EP. Both projects showcased his distinct talent that stretched Afrobeats’ creative boundaries and it’s this distinction that has continued to advance Rema’s career and led him to the storied stage of the O2 Arena.
In the landmark sold-out concert tagged ‘RAVAGE UPRISING’ streamed by over 40,000 people on YouTube Rema thrilled fans with a collection of his hit songs channeled through his energetic stage presence.
The 23-year-old superstar arrived on the O2 stage in grand style riding on the back of a horse painted red and black which are the colours that now drive his brand. Wearing a flowing black cape and donning a mask fashioned after the iconic mask of Idia the legendary Benin Queen, Rema took along with him his cultural heritage as he appeared like as a supreme figure armed with a mighty talent to conquer all that stands in his way
Crayon and Ayra Starr performed their hit collaboration ‘Ngozi’ before Ayra blew away the audience with a stunning rendition of her hit single ‘Rush’.
Rema’s O2 Arena concert is a confirmation of the international superstar status of the Afrobeats Prince who is set to take Nigerian music to another level.
