    Is Rema Overrated Compared To Fireboy DML & Joeboy?
    Rema, Joeboy, & Fireboy DML

    Rema, Fireboy DML, Joeboy; all three are highly talented young fast-rising artists, who came into the music industry almost at the same time.

    The three music stars listed above are all doing great music, and have delivered quite a few hits to us, after the first introduction to their sound.

    However, it seems one of them may have been overrated along the line, giving us the impression that he is quite better than the other two, which frankly speaking, isn’t true.

    I present to you;



    Divine Ikubor, known professionally as Rema, is a Nigerian singer, songwriter, and rapper.

    In 2019, he signed a record deal with Jonzing World, a subsidiary of Mavin Records, and released his first song “Dumebi”, which became a mega-hit made airwaves and topped several music charts in Africa.

    The Ozedikus produced song was the official introduction of Rema into the music industry

    Rema further became a household name with the release of other bangers like; “Corny”, the latest “iron man”, which appeared on Barack Obama‘s 2019 summer playlist, and the latest; “Bad Commando”.

    He also released his debut EP; “Rema” this year, and it peaked at number 1 on Apple Music Nigeria.

    In just an active year in the music industry, the singer has bagged three very prestigious awards; “Next rated” at The Headies, best music video (Dumebj/ at Afrimma19, and City People Music Awards.

    As you can see, he has a pretty nice and smooth career but isn’t the glory showered on him a little too much??

    Let’s check out the others to shed more light on our creative comparison.

    Fireboy DML

    Fireboy DML

    Fireboy DML is an extraordinarily talented singer and passionate songwriter, with lots of musical energy.

    He was signed to popular rapper Olamide’s YBNL in October 2018, and released his smash hit single; “Jealous” early this year.

    The singer got us addicted to his sound when he followed that up with two other hits; “What if I say” and “King”, then he rounded the year off with a mega album; “Laughter, Tears, and Goosebumps”.

    That album is no doubt one of the best albums released this year and is a solid description of pure artistry.

    Despite the uniqueness of his sound, Fireboy DML won just an award this year; City People Music Award for Most Promising Act of the Year. Although he was nominated under “Next Rated” alongside Rema and Joeboy at The Headies. Well, you all know who won that; Remy Boy did.

    Now it’s time to talk about the third wise singer;



    Joeboy is a fast-rising Afro-pop and R7B artist, currently signed to Gorilla Sauce Ent. and Mr. Eazi’s Banku music

    The talented artiste is blessed with amazing vocals and has a very stylish music attitude.

    He came into the limelight with the release of his hit single; “Baby“, and followed that up with another banger; “Begining”.

    Joeboy also did a mega collaboration with DMW act; Mayorkun, on a jam titled; “Don’t call me back”.

    Rounding off a massive music year, Joeboy dropped an EP titled; “Love & Light” which is doing quite great.

    Ok, now we’re done with the little history class, back to the main issue on the ground;

    Is Rema Overrated Compared To Fireboy DML & Joeboy?

    Having read this far, I’m sure you have a clear understanding of each of these artists, their music, and attainments alike.

    However, I’d like to open your eye on the fact that Rema has been unnecessarily overhyped and overrated compared to these two.

    Yeah, we all know that he’s the youngest and all other mushy stuff but hey! this is music y’all.

    Let me start with this question, how many hits did Rema release this year? believe it or not, it was just one mega song; “Dumebi” and we can talk of Lady too even though he dropped different EPs.

    Right now, that is the only song he has released that can be referred to as a hit. Yes, there was “Corny”, then “iron man“, then “Bad commando” and the rest, but all these songs faded soon after they were released.

    With just one hit, Rema bagged three awards! Fireboy DML gave us three hits!; “Jealous“, “What if is say“, and “KIng“, yet he was compensated with one award. Joeboy gave us “Beginning after “Baby“, but had the same faith as Fiireboy, Why?

    Also, we all know that Rema‘s songs are not as relatable as Fireboy DML and Joeboy’s. He has this distinct sound, that even collaborations with other artists may not be so great.

    Many music lovers have testified to this fact, especially those who reacted to an article published by us at “Mp3bullet.ng”, where we suggested a song collaboration from these three.

    The majority of our readers insisted that the other two made better songs than Rema who may end up killing the vibe of the song.

    Yet again, Rema has not dropped any solid piece of work this year, he did more of EPs, and so did  Joeboy.

    However, let’s talk about Fireboy DML’s album, right now, that album is topping charts and has even outdistanced Davido’s “A good time” album across several digital platforms!.

    This is an artist who creates good music! why can’t we bring ourselves to see the true state of things?

    I am not in any way saying Rema is not good at what he does because, in fact, he is a great artist!. I’m only asking that we slow down on the overrating and let his music speak for itself.

    We should learn to always give the crown to only those it fits!

    On that note, I’d like to draw the curtain here, Thank you!!!
