How I Struggled To Cater For My Family After Losing My Father And Brother —Rema

Nigerian musician Divine Ikubor, also known as Rema, has recounted the ordeals he went through in his quest to cater for his family after his father and brother passed away.

Rema’s father, Justice Ikubor, was reportedly found dead in a room at Bins Hotel in Benin City in 2008. Before his death, Justice Ikubor was a high-ranking member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo State and the former General Manager of the state-owned Ethiope Publishing Company.

Rema, on Rubbin’ Minds, which aired on Channels TV on Sunday, April 24, 2022, said he was once a gospel musician, but had to switch to circular music to finance his family.

The 21-year-old narrated; “I was still in Benin when that switch happened. A lot of people thought that when I got signed, I started deviating.”

“No. Actually, life was tough in Benin. I’m not that guy to ask the people in church to pay me because I’m doing God’s work.”

“Right there in Benin, I started going to competitions, going to bars, lounges, political rallies; just trying to get on the stage and hold a microphone, to at least get sprayed some money to come back home and feed my family, because we were going through tough times.”

“I lost my father and brother and I needed to come through for my family. At that point in time, I felt like that’s where I started spacing out; little by little, until I just exiled.”

“It was weird for me and most especially for my mum because she was well known in church. I didn’t do any much explaining. I just told her to trust me,” Rema explained.
