In other news, A Nigerian man living in the US who describes himself as an expert in spiritualism claims that singer Rema practices black magic to be successful in the music industry.
He stated Rema was the most hazardous performer in Nigeria’s entertainment industry and that he was practising sorcery.
He claims that his Rave & Rose album’s cover, which features an inverted church that has been set on fire, is evidence of Rema’s use of black magic.
The man who identified himself as an excellent archaeologist also looked at some sinister pictures of Rema holding a skeleton and came to the conclusion that they were demonic in nature.
