Young talented Nigerian singer, Rema, has recounted how life was tough for him after he lost his father and elder brother to the cold hands of death.
The Marvins star produced a narration during a chat with Manny Norte on Capital Xtra, where he spoke extensively on his background and his entrance into the musical scene.
According to the ‘Bad Commando’s coroner, the loss of his dad and his brother brought an untold pressure on him to look after his mother.
Rema stated that such bad experiences in the past have in a big way shaped his music career while also inspiring him to do more.
The Marvins young star attributed his success to the support of his mother. He further said such support prompted his decision to buy her an SUV while he was just 17 out of his savings.
In his words, Rema said;
“At some points, things got tough I had to man up. My past life has the same effect on my present being in the music and taking things forward,”
“I had to work hard because I lost my father and my brother and things were left only to me. So, I had to put things in place. I did a lots of job like working at a beach in Ghana.
“Hard work got me my this shape. At first, it was really hard for me, I cried and was really sad. When I got back to Nigeria I had to appreciate my mum for being strong so I had to get her a car.
“I was tired of seeing her trekking everyday. She didn’t even have money to use a public transport or motorcycle. Even though I had no car of my own then, I bought a car for my mother”
