- According to Rema, he was already buoyant enough before he was signed by his record label
- He spoke on how music changed his life and how he would still make it outside of music
Divine Ikubor, a well-known singer, has asserted that he isn't into music for money .
In an interview with Korty EO, Rema claimed that even if he failed to succeed in the music business, he would continue to work hard and make money.
Unlike many of his peers, Rema's motivation for creating music goes far beyond monetary gain. Instead, it is his sheer passion for the art form that drives him to write, produce, and perform songs that resonate with his fans on a profound level.
The singer declared, ” If music didn't work, I would still be hustling while pushing that button in the corner.
Even at that point where I was doing freestyles, I didn't really need to do a freestyle because I needed money. I had money. I was actually good.”
