Mavin wonder kid, Rema who got activated this year 2019 imagines his music career still unsigned and independent. The Dumebi crooner was all thankful on twitter, for making the freestyle clip on Instagram that caught the attention of D’Prince.
He wrote, “Wonder where I would’ve been by now if I didn’t make that freestyle.”
Rema’s signing and rise to stardom is one story similar to few others. A random upcoming artiste does a freestyle video, puts it up on social media, tags several top stars and label execs, one of the tagged individuals stumbles on it likes the artiste and the paper works kicks off from there.
In the case of Rema, he did a freestyle to D’Prince’s Gucci Gang featuring Davido & Don Jazzy, tagged them all. D’Prince saw the clip, and fell in love with the kid.
When quizzed on how they (Don Jazzy and D’Prince) discovered Rema, Don Jazzy had this to say, confirming the story,
“It’s simple, on Instagram, the Prince put out a song, Gucci gang featuring myself and David and the young man did a freestyle to it and tagged us. That’s how everybody finds every artiste. That’s where anybody that signed any artiste finds them. On Instagram. Tag any artiste, if the person is feeling you… you’ll blow straight up”
“Prince just saw him and was like “Yo I like this guy” and he went to Benin to go and get him. He did not send ticket o, he went there to go and get him by himself. He spoke to his mother… you people are thinking he came from abroad… in my experience, the people that actually even have that American flow or sound American, most of them have not left here.”
