Controversies • Accusation over the Death of his Father: • Rema charged the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Twitter for the death of his father, Justice Ikubor, General Manager of Edo state-owned Ethiopia Publishing Company. He requested that the PDP provide all of the details surrounding his father’s unexplained demise.

• Tagged ‘Materialistic’ over N15 Million Diamond Chain: Rema received a lot of criticism for flaunting his 15 million Naira diamond chain, which he posted about on Instagram with the phrase “15 million Naira.” Yikes!” Fans felt he was merely bragging, and many thought it was an “unproductive” purchase, given Nigeria’s poverty and how N15 million could have made a difference.

• Alleged DJ Neptune for Releasing Old Track without Consent: In 2021, Rema accused DJ Neptune of publishing the song “For You,” which was part of the 16-track album Greatness 2.0. Neptune responded by sharing screenshots of his communication with Rema’s manager, Sean Okeke, about the song’s use and future collaboration on a music video. Neptune also stated that Rema’s crew had a misunderstanding.

Sean then issued a public apology, and Rema tweeted that everything was OK with him and DJ Neptune.

• Controversial Tweet about his Virginity: Rema tweeted in July 2022 that he is a virgin, sparking controversy among his supporters.

• Pranking his Fans: Rema pranked his fans during a Rave and Rose performance in the UK in November 2022 by collapsing onstage. While the rescue crew hauled him away, he returned to play his hit song “Woman” a few seconds later, leaving his fans stunned and perplexed. Many others tweeted that such pranks should not be encouraged.

• Paying Tithes:

Rema said in February 2023 that all of his success stems from playing his Tithe (one-tenth of anything paid to a religious institution), despite having no formal musical instruction.

“Yeah, I expected it (success) because I worked hard for it, had sleepless nights, prayed, gave my seeds, and tithes, and left the rest for the lord which gave him no other option but to bless me.”

• ‘Bounce’ Controversy:  Rema became embroiled in a feud with another artist Ruger after the two released a song called ‘Bounce’. Many fans suspected a feud between the two singers, but it was later discovered that they both discussed it and decided to “bounce along” and enjoy.

• Comparison with Wizkid:  Rema received a lot of anger after denying that he sounded like Wizkid and responding that he sounded like him. While many supporters described him as confident, others said it was Rema’s “unwanted pride” to make such comparisons.
