Rema Reveals How He Switched From Gospel To Secular Music

Divine Ikubor, better known as Rema, a talented Nigerian musician, recently explained how he transitioned from gospel to secular music in a recent interview.

Rema claims that the switch from gospel to secular music occurred when he began singing in clubs and lounges to supplement his income.

Rema stated that he was the leader of a gospel rap group at his church before deciding to abandon gospel music.

During an interview on Channels TV’s Rubbin’ Minds, the musician discussed his journey and shift.


He said, “I was still in Benin when that switch happened. A lot of people thought that when I got signed, I started deviating.

“No. Life was tough in Benin. I’m not that guy to ask the people in the church to pay me because I’m doing God’s work.

“Right there in Benin, I started going to competitions, going to bars, lounges, political rallies; just trying to get on the stage and hold a microphone, to at least get sprayed some money to come back home and feed my family, because we were going through tough times.

“I lost my father and brother and I needed to come through for my family. That’s where I started spacing out; little by little until I just exiled.”

Rema said his decision to switch from gospel music to secular was strange to his mother, but he was able to convince her of his stand.

He added, “It was weird for me and most especially for my mum because she was well known in the church. I didn’t do much explaining. I just told her to trust me.”
