In an Instagram story post, the Afrobeats icon emphasized the need to take a break
Nigerian Afrobeats star Rema has been on a conquering spree lately.
The artist's latest milestone came this week when he wowed football legends at the Ballon D'Or awards just days after making history with Calm Down, the longest-charting and most successful African song of all time on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US.
The 23-year-old appears to be riding the crest of an unstoppable wave of success, having several strings of African achievements.
However, according to latest reports, Rema has called off all his December performances to prioritize his health which he has “ignored” due to his countless shows in recent times.
In an Instagram story post, the Afrobeats icon emphasized the need to take a break and focus on recuperation.
“Breaks my heart to say that I won’t be performing anywhere this December. Been years of touring I’ve ignored my health and I need time to recuperate. 2024 we go again love,” he said.
The Nigerian artist has achieved a lot of musical success this year, smashing multiple streaming and chart records.
The song Calm Down has emerged as the most shazammed of 2023 globally and was last week awarded the best Afrobeats song at the Billboard Music Awards.
Reacting to Rema’s decision to cancel his shows, fellow Nigerian star Davido has praised his accomplishments.
This news will definitely break some of his fans' hearts.
