Rema, the Nigerian singer, says he made his first million at age 17 and gave it to his mother.


In a recent interview on Z100 New York, the ‘Calm Down’ crooner said he knew his mother needed the money more than he did, and he had to give it all to her.

The 22-year-old singer said he was happy to be in a position where he could provide as a teen back then.

“The person who I knew needed it more was my mum. So, I handed everything I made to her,” he said.


“I know it was cool to drive around the city as a 17-year-old in a cool whip. But I can’t drive a cool whip when my mum didn’t have a car or my mum has to borrow my keys. You know, I had to put her on first.

“Passing all of that to her, whatever investment she makes… I made my first million at 17 but I made more than a million. But it’s cool to be in that stage to be able to provide.”

Rema, whose real name is Divine Ikubor, has been enjoying massive reception from music lovers since he came into the limelight.


The singer has also won several awards and recognition.
