Afrobeat musician Divine Ikubor, also known as Rema, has disclosed that he will be taking a medical leave of absence from performing. Additionally, following the release of his ground-breaking Spotify Wrapped revelations on social media, fans reacted to his decision to prioritize his health following an incredible year thus far.
Rema performed an electrifying show as the main act at an event held at the well-known O2 Arena on November 14. Singing his newest hit, “DND,” Rema made a stunning debut as he rode a stationary horse, dressed in all black, and took the stage in front of the sold-out 20,000 spectators at the famed venue. Next, he transitioned into a stunning performance of “Iron Man,” accompanied by an electrifying exhibition of Indian dancers on either side of him.
The musician announced that he would not be playing anywhere in December after this enormous event in an emotional message. Rema declared that he will be taking a break until 2024 to rehabilitate, having neglected his health during years of touring, and netizens, including celebrity colleagues like Davido, wished him well while others made banter on social media.
In his words,
“Breaks my heart to say that I won’t be performing Anywhere this December, been years of touring I’ve ignored my health & I need time to recuperate. 2024 we go again.❤️”
