Popular Nigerian singer, Divine Ikubor, professionally known as Rema, has emphasized how his viewpoint had been affected by the death of his father.

The “Holiday” singer asserted that up to the death of his father, when he first began to understand the importance of family, he didn’t take life seriously.

Speaking on the Afrobeats podcast hosted by Adesope Olajide, Rema said that he used to be extremely playful and uncoordinated before the passing of his father, Mr. Ikubor.

In his words;

“It [losing my dad] shaped me, to be honest. It shaped my mindset, my mood, you know.

There was a point in time I was very colorful, I would say. I was funny, running around, and unserious. I never took life seriously until when I lost my dad. And it just shows different sides of people. It just shows the importance of family as well.

Yeah, as siblings we might have our fights, and quarrels but you never know when you will just not see them again; the people you are closest to. For my dad, my dad used to call me a soldier.”
