Rema’s O2 Arena Show: Benin Indigenes Defend Singer Amid Demonic Claims, Explain History Behind Mask



Mavin star Divine Ikubor Rema has continued to trend hours after the success of his show at the O2 Arena concert.

Rema, who set a record as the youngest Nigerian artiste to shut down the prestigious venue, caused a buzz over some bizarre imageries he used during the show.

After the event, some netizens went on to link the Calm Down star to the Illuminati secret society. One of the talking points from Rema’s show was the facial mask he used when he made a grand entrance on a sculptured horse, which was termed demonic by some netizens.

Benin indigenes throw their weight behind Rema

Amid the different claims linking Rema to demonic activities, netizens from his home town, Benin, in Edo state, have taken to social media to defend him. They revealed the mask Rema wore during the show is referred to as Queen Idia mask, a hero in Benin Kingdon. An account with the handle Edocentric_ on X, formerly Twitter, wrote: “Queen idia mask/REMA isn’t demonic as a matter of fact she is a national hero to Nigerian & the benin kingdom She lived in the 15th century She was the first edo woman to go to war She defeated a giant for a son to become king She was the first queen mother in benin his.”

“There was so much symbolism with the entrance Rema rode the mystical horse wearing the Queen Idia mask just like our ancestors. A subtle nod to Benin/Edo.”

23Reallife: “I pray and hope Rema’s team and organisers of REMA LIVE IN BENIN add this mask to mech that will be sold that day. 20, 000 people inside Ogbe stadium with their IDIA mask on, will be historical and fulfilling. Please make this happen.”
