Rema has been making music in Benin since he was 11, starting out as a rapper in a church group but eventually changing his sound to fit the popular sound in his community. “They told me if I want to make it to Lagos, I have to sound commercial. I tried to vibe to it but I wasn’t really good at it.” Eventually, his fondness for subverting the conventional and drive to be distinct led him to look to social media where his hip-hop leanings were more appreciated, sharing free verses and partaking in music challenges to grow his audience online. It was D’Prince’s “Gucci Gang” challenge, and the 1-minute freestyle that got Rema the attention of his new label boss.

According to Rema, The way D'prince tells it, the beat for Dumebi had been refused by three big artists he spared the embarrassment of naming. When he heard it, he freestyled to it on the spot, hoping to return to add finishing touches later. But to his surprise, D’Prince liked the raw vibe of the song. “He said I didn’t need to put actual words. He said I could leave it and I agreed since I wanted to sound different anyway. A lot of things don’t make sense on the song but it’s number one on iTunes. It’s crazy.”

Rema was also an inclusion in the song All is in order which included Don Jazzy, Korede Bello and the Crayon.
