A comparison between Rema and Olamide, Nigerian music superstars, has sparked outrage amongst music lovers and enthusiasts on the country’s Twittersphere.
A heated debate on “who is the bigger star” ensued on the microblogging platform on Monday as the Mavin Records star was compared with the YBNL boss.
While a segment of users outrightly wrote off the contest, describing it as a disrespect on Olamide, a few others stood their grounds that the ‘Dumebi crooner’ is way bigger than the YBNL boss.
“The Mavins PR team have taken this one too far. There’s controversy, and there’s blatant disrespect and desecration of our music history. This Rema and Olamide debate is one that only retards should engage in. Respect the Legends,” a Twitter user said.
“Rema is bigger than who.. Olamide. I need not argue with you. They are parboiling noodles in your brain,” another user said.
Here is how some users reacted to the comparison:

Respect the LEGENDS.

Rema is better than Olamide who has been consistent for 8years, won nearly 30 awards, the Greatest Indigenous Rapper ever, the Lord of Street Hop with over 50 Hit Songs. When Olamide was dropping Bars on Yung Erikina, Rema was still drinking Cerelac ffs 😡

Olamide – Eni duro at 19 is bigger than Rema’s entire present career.

The only reason Rema is making wave is because of the hype honestly.
Terri & Barry Jhay are very much better than him.
If not for Nigerians selective criticism, Terri, Barru Jhay, Oxlade drop good songs with quality lyrics but Nigerians chose Beat & poor lyrics they claim to hate

When Dagrin died(God rest his soul), Olamide took up the challenge and single handedly held the indigenous Yoruba rap from going into extinct for many years, helped a lot of artist come to limelight, and you want to compare him with Rema?
This is total disrespect to the Legend!!

Some statements just make you wonder how certain people breathe .
How you sit down , think and say Rema an upcoming artist who just had 1 good year in music is better than olamide a consistent entertainer is very very absurd . It’s not even up for debates , it’s disrespectful.

You’re comparing Rema to Olamide? Is your brain diabetic? 😡

I think the reason Olamide and Wizkid made it big time is because we never compared them to anyone. We simply enjoyed their tunes.
You could be pulling Rema's career down if you guys continue doing this to him.
