“I Never Thought A Nigerian Musician Could Make Top 5 In America” – Davido Hails Rema



Nigerian Afrobeats singer Davido Adeleke, popularly known as Davido has expressed exultation over Rema, a younger colleague, who has managed to achieve success in the United States.
O.B.O, as he is preferably known by fans, expressed disbelief at how long Rema’s hit song “Calm Down” has remained at the topmost spot of the U.S music charts in a recent interview on UAE’s #1 Music Station The Kris Fade Show.
The global expansion of the Afrobeats genre, according to Davido, is beyond his wildest imagination, and he is extremely fascinated by the speed at which artists like Rema have managed to succeed all over the world.
“Years ago, I never thought a Nigerian artiste would have a Top 5 record in America. Rema has had Top 5 records in America for the past eight months, non-shaken,” Davido stated.
Rema’s megahit song “Calm Down” and the remix version which featured Selena Gomez not long ago, made history after emerging as the first Nigerian song to spend an entire year on the U.S. Billboard chart.
