Rema on stage at O2 Brixton Academy: Day 1–Receives plaque for 1 billion streams for ‘Calm Down’, Day 2– Pranks audience with a fake pass out


Fans who made it to Rema’s 2-day sold-out show on November 7 & 8 for the Rave & Roses world tour at the O2 Brixton Academy in London, were given a good run for their money.

The 22-year-old Afrobeats star treated fans to a great show, performing several of his biggest hits and bringing out big stars like UK rapper Dave, Skepta, Nigerian singers Fireboy DML, Victony, and Santi on stage.

On day one of the concert, the Calm Down singer received a plaque to mark the song’s over billion streams from his A&R, Rima Tahini, in the honor of his achievement. Rema dedicated the moment to his fans saying:

Rema O2 Concert

“This is for you, this belongs to you, you deserve. I want to say thank you for your love, for your support. Thank you so much for believing in my ideas, my crazy sound. First when I came out a lot of people laughed at me, they said I was too different, my sound was Indian. And now look at this boy!”

The following night, Rema pulled a trick off the top drawer, pranking fans with a fake pass out. He suddenly crouched and fell to the ground while performing, before being taken out on a stretcher by the medics, but without wasting much time, burst back on stage to perform his hit song Woman.

The moment puzzled the audience, as their emotions went from 100 to zero and back to a 100; from jubilation, to panic, and back to massive celebration. Safe to say Rema had the place on lock.
