How Rema inspired me, others — Shallipopi

Benin-born singer Crown Uzama, popularly known as Shallipopi, has revealed how his colleague, Rema motivated him and other artistes from Edo State to have faith in their musical talents. 

Speaking in a recent episode of The Zero Conditions podcast, the 'Elon Musk' crooner said described Rema as a beacon of hope to singers in the south-south state of the nation.

According to him, the award-winning artiste's rise to stardom made them believe hey could also cross over.

Shallipopi said; “Benin as a place, none of us get hope to blow. We thought musical stardom was only attainable for Lagos and Abuja residents. We didn’t had the hope that we too could achieve spotlight.

"It was after Rema came, after D’Prince signed him to Jonzing World, that was when he realised that is also possible for Benin artists to hit stardom. There’s hope. If Rema cross over, we go fit cross over.

“When Rema went to Lagos, we were watching him. We are his day-one fans. He knows. We’ve been following since when he was posting freestyle videos on social to his trap EP to his new height. He was the one who gave us hope that we too can make it.”
