Nigeria: Fans React As Mavin New Singnee Rema Insists 'Wizkid Sounds Like Him' Not the Other Way Around

Rema said that he doesn't sound like Wizkid, rather it is the Starboy who sounds like him.

Mavin Records new young artist Rema has recently come under fire for insisting that Wizkid and some of his other colleagues might sound like him.

The young artist whose music is relatively new to the Nigerian scene made the statement in an interview, stating that he doesn't sound like Wizkid, rather it is the Starboy who sounds like him. This is coming after there has been wide spread commentary that the rookie sounds a lot like Wizkid.

When asked about being compared to Wizkid, Reekado Banks and Skiibii, he said "I don't sound like anyone actually, they might sound like me but I don't sound like anyone."

Since Rema's bold statement hit social media, people have had mixed feelings about his claim with some encouraging him for being confident enough to make such a remark and others condemning his statement as unwarranted pride.

Below are fans reactions to the whole saga;
