Just a year as a mainstream artist under Mavin’s record, 20 years old Afrobeats and Trap artist REMA is already getting major recognition in the international scene. Countless of times , Rema has introduced himself as “The Future” and has gotten beef from both stars he idolized and colleagues in the industry and he has let his art continue to speak for him.
Rema just got his first nomination at the BET award for the viewer’s choice : best new international act. He was nominated alongside Sha Sha, Celeste and others.

Canadian rapper Drake has managed to bagged for himself the highest nominations of 6 categories while the African Giant Burna Boy was nominated in the best international act category.

The BET award 2020 is set to hold as a virtual event on the 29th of June this year.
