By Published October 07, 2019

The emerging 19-year-old Nigerian artist drops four highly stylised tracks.

Rising sensation Divine Ekubor, widely known by his stage name Rema shares new 4 track EP entitled Bad Commando. Considering as the future of afro-pop Rema blends Western influences with hip-hop, alté scenes or afrobeats and with his soft voice he manages to create a unique sound.

Bad Commando follows the whirlwind success of his self-titled debut EP. Following its release in March, the EP rapidly shot to no.1 in Nigeria with all 4 tracks charting in the top 5, generating the massive hits ‘Iron Man’ and ‘Dumebi’.

More recently Rema being featured in Barack Obama’s summer playlist has also been heralded by The Fader as “Nigerian Pop’s Golden Child”, and credited as “Leading the next generation of Nigerian Pop” according to Pitchfork.
