Rema claim that he usually visits restaurants and bars to perform shows,  despite the fact that he headed a gospel group at that period.

Rema dropped the shocking update on his music transition while attending an interview and captured by glamsquad.

In his words:

“I was still in Benin when that switch happened. A lot of people thought that when I got signed, I started deviating.

“No. Actually, life was tough in Benin. I’m not that guy to ask the people in church to pay me because I’m doing God’s work.

“Right there in Benin, I started going to competitions, going to bars, lounges, political rallies; just trying to get on the stage and hold a microphone, to at least get sprayed some money to come back home and feed my family, because we were going through tough times.

“I lost my father and brother and I needed to come through for my family. At that point in time, I felt like that’s where I started spacing out; little by little, until I just exiled.”

The singer also revealed his parents reactions for embarking on secular music.
