Rema explains why he is yet to jump on the Amapiano bandwagon 


Nigerian musician Divine Ikubor popularly known in music circles as Rema has explained why he has not jumped on the Amapiano bandwagon like his other colleagues have done.

The ‘Calm Down’ crooner who gave his explanation in a recent interview on Apple Music said that he is yet to jump on the bandwagon because he needs time to learn about the music genre so he can come out with a good song.

Rema who made the disclosure while recollecting how he asked producer and singer, Musa Keys to educate him on the buzzing South African music genre said that he feels like tapping into the sound.

He said: “I feel like tapping into a sound, most especially when it is within Africa; I take my time to study. I don’t jump on the wave, I take my time to understand things. When me and Musa Keys were in the studio, I was like, ‘I know a lot of Nigerians are doing Amapiano but I need you to educate me about Amapiano. I do not want to hop on it. Yes, I can make a banger, but it is like can you teach me?’”

“When I hear the ones from South Africa, it holds more spirit than the ones from anywhere else. Although I do not understand everything they are saying, I can feel the particles, the elements or the spiritual essence of the music.

“I know there is a lot of Amapiano from different parts of Africa, but educate me about yours, right? I feel like that’s necessary. I am so down to collaborate, and while I collaborate, I want to learn; I do not want to do it the wrong way. Yes, Amapiano is a sound I want to tap into but give me time with that!”
