With his breakthrough song “Calm Down” delivering him the enormous international popularity that has helped him top charts in numerous countries and establish multiple records, Rema has had an amazing 2023.
Another historic achievement was Rema’s attendance at the annual Ballon d’Or ceremony, which honors the world’s top players and marks the first time an African has done so. The celebration is organized by the France Football Federation.
Rema sang his hit song “Calm Down” to the attendees at the Paris event, who included international football superstars.
Rema thanked God for his mercy and wrote on his social media pages, expressing how honored he was to bring Afrobeats to a worldwide audience.
Rema becomes the third Nigerian musician to have appeared on some of the biggest platforms in football history, following Davido and Burna Boy, with his performance at the Ballon d’Or ceremony.
Burna Boy became the first African to record a performance at the 2023 Champions League final in Istanbul, while Davido became the first Nigerian to do so at the 2022 FIFA World Cup final in Qatar.tunes
