Rema is the latest artist to get a spot in Apple Music’s Up Next program.

The young artist has become one of the leading voices of the new Nigerian generation since the release of his debut Rema EP and successive Bad Commando EP, riding on massive hits like “Dumebi,” the titular “Bad Commando,” and “Iron Man,” which even made it onto Barack Obama’s playlist.

Rema has also recently earned a 2020 BET Award nomination.

“Getting recognised by Apple as their Up Next artist is a huge deal for me,” says Rema. “I want to take Afrobeats to the world and now the world is listening, it’s an honour. This has come during a time when across the world people are uniting and coming together to fight for justice. This generation, my generation, are standing up and speaking out and it’s amazing to see, I am standing right beside them.”

“Rema exemplifies the youth movement emerging from Africa,” added Ebro Darden, Apple Music’s Global Editorial Head of Hip-Hop and R&B. “His voice has carried him from Benin City, Nigeria to Barack Obama’s 2019 Summer Playlist. He’s been cosigned by Drake and Rihanna and has remixes to his music with Becky G, Matoma and Major Lazer. Rema is a shy, young artist who has managed to capture the world’s attention with his art. We are excited to amplify him further and can’t wait to see what he’ll do with his platform next.”
