Another fan asked Rema for his advice to struggling young man and the singer replied that “Change your mindset; change the laws that guide this realm; Watch your friends; believe in your vision; listen more; mind your business; sow your seeds; prepare for sacrifices to be made; stay patient; and most of all, act a fool and pray.”
Rema then went on to state his take on negative side talks from the music industry, “The son of God was crucified even after the love he showed the people of this world. It didn’t stop him from fulfilling his promise. In fact, it was part of the purpose today that his legacy remains. Our new generation’s crucifixion takes place on the internet or in the gatherings of many men with envy in disguise. That won’t stop me from fulfilling my purpose.”
Rema went on to speak about how fame has made celebrities more susceptible to criticism.
Here is what he said;
I know of many legends who swarm in the rivers of love only to be hated today because of the life they lived behind closed doors. Fame can not make me pose on social media to be who I’m not just to be loved. I grew up different and it shared my personality for I will not succumb to the will of men for there will be no happiness to feed their thirst. We all sin but fame has made us even more vulnerable to the extent that sinners now count our sins, I guess it’s part of the price.”
