According to him, he is very much inspired by Burna Boy because of his story, and Fela has also been a source of inspiration since his younger years.
His words, “I’m inspired by Burna [Boy] because of his story. Fela [Kuti] inspires me. Kanye West [inspires me] because of how far he goes in terms of his creativity, production. I really like Wiz [kid] because of how he carries himself.”
In May 2021, Rema announced he would be calling his sound “Afrorave”, a subgenre of Afrobeats with influences of Arabian and Indian music which has led to him having one of the strongest fanbases in the country known as Ravers.
Rema added that he respects Kanye West for his creativity as well, and Wizkid carries himself admirably.
