Fans have argued this more times than I can remember, but who is actually better, Rema or Fireboy?
Songs dished out by both Rema and Fireboy DML over the past couple of years have been mostly well-received by their devoted fanbase.
It all boils down to individual choice. It’s possible that some listeners like Rema’s style of singing, the catchy and heavy beats while others will favour Fireboy’s simple-yet-classy style.
Recognizing the individuality of each musician and appreciating the many ways in which they have shaped the music business is essential.

Rema first gained recognition in 2019 with his debut single “Iron Man.” He has since released several hit songs such as “Dumebi,” “Lady,” and “Ginger Me,” which have earned him a large following both in Nigeria and internationally. His single, “Calm Down” is nearly a worldwide anthem.
The Mavin/Jonzing star, Divine Ikubor, also known as Rema has been praised for his unique sound, which blends Afrobeats, trap, and pop influences. He has been nominated for several awards and has won several, including the Headies Award for Next Rated in 2019.
Fireboy on the other hand too, is also a fantastic singer and an excellent songwriter who rose to fame about the same time as Rema with his debut studio album “Laughter, Tears and Goosebumps.”
The album, released in 2019 featured hit songs like “Jealous” and “What If I Say” and earned him critical acclaim and a large following. Fireboy’s music style is often described as Afrobeats with an R&B twist, and his lyrics often touch on themes such as love, heartbreak, and self-discovery. He has won several awards, including the Headies Award for Best R&B Album in 2019 and 2020.
Both musicians have played at a wide range of shows and festivals outside of Nigeria.
The Lagos City Marathon, the Big Brother Naija eviction show, and the NBA Africa Game are just a few of the major events at which Rema has performed. The United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada are just a few of the places where you might see him performing at a concert or festival.
Fireboy has also given a number of concerts and other performances outside of Nigeria. Among the festivals where he has played are the Native Festival, Homecoming, and Starboy Fest. Both the SXSW festival in the United States and the Afro Nation event in Portugal have included performances by Fireboy.
Both performers have been lauded for their dynamic shows, which have helped establish them as two of Nigeria’s most well-known and accomplished musicians.
Their music style, lyrics, stage performance, awards and nominations and industry impacts go almost at par. Another important thing about these two is that they are both signed to two of the biggest record labels in Nigeria, Mavin and YBNL Nation which have both played a significant role in the Nigerian music industry and have contributed to the success of many artists.
