Rema Shares Eye-Catching ‘Benin Boys’ Video

The new single features rising Nigerian artist Shalipoppi...

Nigerian hyphenate Rema has shared his crucial new single ‘Benin Boys’.

Signed to Mavin Global/Jonzing World, the Nigerian artist is busy re-shaping the landscape, shattering some records along the way. Recently packing out The O2 Arena in London, one visual segment saluted his Benin City heritage – but ruffled a few feathers.

One negative viewpoint accused Rema of “demonic” imagery, something that stung him deeply. Doubling down his focus, new single ‘Benin Boys’ is a celebration of his culture.

Joined by fast-rising Nigerian artist Shalipoppi, the track was produced by Yo X and it’s a riveting piece of music, merging trap, afrobeats, and more into a potent elixir.

A statement of intent, it finds Rema rapping: “You touch a Benin boy, you touch the full nation.”

Tune in now.
