Famous Nigerian artist Divine Ikubor, better known by his stage name Rema, has replied to allegations of “demonic” masks by asserting that they are reproductions of the bronzes worn by his forefathers.

After his performance at London’s 02 Arena, where some fans assumed he was an Illuminati member, the young performer was dragged.

Rema was backed by an informed supporter from Benin City who claimed the mask belonged to Queen Idia, a national symbol of the Benin Kingdom.

In an effort to set the record straight and respond to criticism directed towards the mask he wore during his debut at the 02, Rema has spoken out today.

He claims that it is a replica of the bronzes made by his forefathers, some of which are still on exhibit at the London Museum.

Rema thinks he has reinvented Edo state and placed it on the map of the world by accomplishing this.

As he stated;

“RAVAGE UPRISING/ My Ancestors bronzes sit in the museum of this very city so I remade mine. Hence, Edo is redefined, the map reshaped, your minds awakened & the mask reborn. Thank you London! ”
