There are a few new kids on the block in the Nigerian music space, but not many are as exciting as Divine Ikubor, popularly known as Rema. The youngster currently signed to Jonzing World, a subsidiary of Mavin Records has within such a short time dropped a surprising amount of great music and he’s becoming a fan favourite.

I decided to rank some of the songs that I consider to be among his best.

Here we go.


Don’t get me wrong. On another list, this song would be higher, but compared to Rema’s other songs, “Why” doesn’t just cut it. Why…Why..

Iron Man

Don’t hit me with “but it was on Obama’s list”. I’m not Obama. It’s a pretty good song, not gonna lie, but 8th is also not a bad position, don’t you think?


“Sakoloweko, o weko…gear 1, gear 2, gear tiri” This song is a bop, but I’d just rather not be cursing myself saying what I don’t know


I didn’t hop on the Rema train on time, and Spiderman was one of my early faves, and it’s still a jam. I can never stop saying “somebody save me”


Rema really did something beautiful with this song. But the point where the song really hits is the chorus. Beamer is a jam.

Ginger Me

The fact that this song was only released in June 2020 and it’s this high on the list says a lot about it. Rema really came with his sound and he didn’t forget rhyme as usual.


Something about this song just really makes me want to dance. it’s definitely a Rema classic. Just pure vibes


If Dumebi isn’t this high up this list, then there’s a mistake somewhere. Even if it isn’t one of his most recent songs, it’s definitely one of his best songs.

Bad Commando

Without any questions, Bad Commando is Rema’s best song to date. The fact that it’s also really short makes me listen to it at least 3 times before I move to another song. Another banger!
