A tweet by a Twitter user of a comparison between two Nigerian artistes, has caused a frenzy on the platform, with a lot of people going against his stance.
The said user stated that fast-rising Mavin Records artiste, Rema, is a bigger artiste than rapper, Olamide in the music industry.
Of course, his notion caused a stir on the social media platform as some described it as an insult on Olamide with some others feeling there’s no basis for comparison between the two artistes who are miles apart.
18-year-old fast rising artiste, Rema won this year’s Headies’ Next Rated Award and since he began having his fair share of stardom, his fans have been rating him alongside other top notch music artistes who’s been on the music radar for years.
Olamide, a multi-award winning controversial rapper, sprung into limelight some nine years ago after he released his hit single, ‘Eni Duro’ and has since then, been consistent with releasing music that’s been making waves.
Aside from his consistency, the rapper was also instrumental to the success of other stars like Adekunle Gold, Lil Kesh, Lyta among others who were at a time, signed to his YBNL record label.
In light of the comparison between himself and Rema, this certainly isn’t the first time Rema’s fans would be causing controversial debates online as from the moment he was signed to Mavins record label, a section of social media has been comparing him to top singer, Wizkid, saying he sings like the “Joro” crooner and may likely be the next big name to come out of Africa.
They backed their argument with claims that Rema also came into limelight at the same age Wizkid hit the Nigerian music industry like a whirlwind and has become one of the most successful artistes to come out of Africa.
The sizzling hot debate about Olamide and Rema was prompted by a tweet from a Twitter user who listed 10 Nigerian artistes he said he considers as legends in the music industry.
A user then went on to suggest that Davido listed in number six shouldn’t be above Olamide, another Twitter user who seems to be enraged by the comment then said “even Rema is bigger than him (Olamide)” and thus, the battle begun.
