Rema, the Nigerian singer, on Sunday, walked off the stage during his performance at the 2024 Dreamville Festival in North Carolina.


The two-day festival took place on April 6 and 7.

Rema performed on day 2 alongside music heavyweights including J. Cole, Nicki Minaj, Monica, and Muni Long.

During his performance of ‘Calm Down’, his hit track, the music star abruptly stopped the show due to sound issues.


A now-viral video captures Rema expressing his dissatisfaction with the sound quality, calling it “messed up” and stating it was hindering his performance.

He also called for equal treatment regarding sound quality for all artistes.

“Hold on, there are too many sound issues. it is messing up my whole performance I am seriously not feeling this sh*t at all,” he said

“It is too messed up. I am representing Africa, this is too messed up. If the sound cannot be perfect for every artiste that gets on this stage… Africa is in the house and you are messing sh*t up? I will walk out this stage bruh, fix it!”


Another clip shows Rema reiterating his concerns about the sound before leaving the stage.

“Too many sound issues my people, I love you goodnight,” he added.

The incident is not the first time Rema has walked off stage due to production issues.

In July 2023, he left a performance in Atlanta over what he described as a “terrible” venue that “disrespected me and Afrobeats”.
