A video has captured the moment that popular Nigerian Afrobeat singer, Divine Ikubor, known professionally as Rema, walked off the stage in Atlanta, USA, over alleged poor show organization.
The singer said the organizers had disrespected him and also Afrobeat music by giving a poor stage display, sound systems, and substandard venue.
“Afrobeat is way too big to look like this, You feel me? I don’t take no rubbish, I respect my fans. I’m gonna reschedule this show.
“They have disrespected me and disrespected Afrobeat by treating you guys like this. I’m out, I love you,” Rema said.
