Nigerian singer, Divine Ikubor, popularly known as Rema, has revealed that he made his first one million nairas at the age of 17.
"The person who I knew needed it more was my mum. So, I handed everything I made to her. I know it was cool to drive around the city as a 17-year-old in a cool whip. But I can't drive a cool whip when my mum didn't have a car or my mum has to borrow my keys. You know, I had to put her on first.
"Passing all of that to her, whatever investment she makes… I made my first million [naira] at 17 but I made more than a million. But it's cool to be in that stage to be able to provide [for your family]."
He said, "Someone created an opportunity for me to bless the world this much. So, I can't imagine how much the people I helped are going to bless the world. You know, I go hard not just for myself. I go hard for them. As doors open for me, I wanna open doors for them."
