Putting it into consideration, this can be true as Rema himself defines his sound as Afro Rave and not purely Afrobeat, it maybe Alte all along, since it’s comprises of different genres coming together, and Rema do mix a lot of genres in his songs, same with Fireboy. Do you think this is true, well for me, fckn yes.
