Nigerian superstar, Rema, has shared his excitement at achieving his goal of headlining a concert in India.
The Mavin Records signee, who is currently on his much-anticipated Indian Tour, took to social media to share a video of an old interview where he spoke about his dream to shut down India.
In the interview he granted in 2020, Rema had questioned why Nigerian artistes are not breaking into the music scene in India, like they are doing in Europe and America.
“You see Afrobeats, I want to take it to the next level. I want us to get into the India zone. Why can’t we shut down India?” he passionately said in the interview.
Three years after the interview, the ‘Calm Down’ crooner, has achieved the impressive feat of selling out a concert in Delhi, India.
Sharing a video mash-up of the interview alongside scenes from the concert, Rema expressed gratitude to those who believed in his dream, and Indians for the love and support he received in the country.
“3 years later I did it! Thank you India for your overwhelming love & my heart to those who BELIEVED,” he wrote.
The singer is set to shut down Mumbai on Saturday and Hyderabad on Sunday, following his energetic performance in Delhi last weekend.
