Rema and Selena Gomez Win Big at MTV VMA Awards
It’s Rema’s moment, and we are living in it. His hit song Calm Down remix with Selena Gomez picks up another win this year and this time at MTV’s Video Music Awards(VMAs) award for the inaugural ‘Best Aftobeats’ category.
MTV’s VMAS returned to the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, tonight (September 12), honouring some of the biggest names in the Top 40 arena.
Thestar beat other Afrobeats contemporaries like Burna Boy, Wizkid, Davido, Ayra Starr, Fireboy DML and Asake to clinch the inaugural award.
During his acceptance speech, Rema used the opportunity to appreciate pioneers and trailblazers like the late Fela Kuti, Don Jazzy and D’Prince (his label heads), Tuface Idibia, D’Banj, Wizkid, Davido and Burna Boy for paving the way for artist like himself.
