Nigerian singer Divine Ikubor, popularly known as Rema, marked a historic moment on November 14, 2023, as he electrified the 02 Arena in London during his “Ravage Uprising” show.

The sold-out event, with a capacity of 20,000, witnessed an overflow of Nigerian celebrities and fans who flocked to London.

Rema joined the ranks of other award-winning Nigerian artists such as Wizkid, Davido, Burna Boy, and Asake, who have successfully sold out the arena.

Rema’s entrance opened with his latest hit, “DND,” as he made a dramatic arrival on a stationary horse, adorned in a mask and a sleek black ensemble.

The performance transitioned into a melodic rendition of “Iron Man,” accompanied by a captivating display of Indian dance choreography on either side of the artist.
