The governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki has sent a message to Afrobeats superstar, Rema after he announced the cancellation of all his December shows.
Bellnews recalls that the singer who was initially scheduled to tour the cities of Lagos, Abuja, and Benin, said he would not be performing anywhere this December due to health reasons.
Reacting to Rema’s announcement via his Twitter handle on Thursday, Obeseki said Edo people are proud of Rema and remain behind him every step of the way.
He noted that the Edo-born’s extraordinary feat of selling out London’s O2 Arena to amassing 1.6 billion streams on Spotify this year not only shows that he is exceptionally talented but also serves as an eye-opener for young creatives.
Obaseki wrote, “My Rema

“From the extraordinary feat of selling out the O2 Arena to amassing an impressive 1.6 billion streams of music, your accomplishments show your exceptional talent. They pave the way for countless young creatives, offering them a glimpse of what’s possible.
“We are extremely proud of you and remain behind you every step of the way.
“Wish you a speedy recovery, young champion.”
