Talented Nigerian singer, Divine Ikubor aka Rema, has now claimed that many artistes copy his moves. The youngster who spoke during a recent interview with Rolling Stone explained that these artistes who copy him do not give him that glory but he is not disturbed by it.
According to Rema, he is actually flattered when people copy him because it shows that he brings something to the game.
“Even though some artistes would not give me that glory, I know how many people have copied my moves and I’m flattered by it, it shows I’m bringing something to the game. The hardest part about that thing is sometimes they don’t even give you time to dwell on that fresh idea you just thought about. When everybody is on it, if you’re that guy, you just have to create something.”
