Divine Ikubor, better known as the Nigerian rapper Rema, arrived in Mumbai on Tuesday to begin his tour of India.
The musician will perform in Mumbai, Delhi, and Hyderabad after becoming a worldwide success with his tune “Calm Down.” At the airport, he was given a friendly welcome. The musician also grabbed his phone to record the paparazzi as they caught him on camera.
Another video showed him being welcomed at a city hotel with dhol, bhangra, dandiya, and a tikka. Rema joined the group and mimicked the dancers’ movements. On his hit song Calm Down, he also collaborated with them to perform the dandiya. Using a turban and a garland, he posted a photo of himself and wrote, “Okay, I need an Indian name asap.” The musician quoted, “I have always wanted to tour India, a beautiful country with some of the most amazing fans and a diverse culture.”
Manish Malhotra was Rema’s first pick when it came to sampling designs because he is the leader in India’s fashion industry. To guarantee that there is cross-cultural representation, the outfit being manufactured will incorporate some type of indigenous integration in terms of style and material.
Since the majority of the conversation has so far taken place virtually, Rema and Manish are expected to meet in person for the final round of fittings on Wednesday at the latter’s studio.
