The latest edition to the Mavin Records family is the breakthrough teenage artist Rema. Signing in a joint deal with Jonzing World, he has unveiled his debut release in the form of the Iron Man EP. Packed with infectious afrobeat grooves, it comes with a brand new video for the main single of the same name.
Rema is a fantastic example of the strength of talent currently emerging from Africa, with “Iron Man” a superb introduction that is likely to gain him many plaudits. The record in itself is a hybrid – it’s sonically Afrobeats but with a slight South Asian flavour. An instant standout. Not to mention he manipulates his sound, giving off some Fuji-esque vibes. Mysterious, sultry and enticing – just like the visuals.
From the stages of church and the playground to being associated with one of the most recognisable names and rosters in African music. At just 18 years old and with the help of visionary Don Jazzy – responsible for aiding the careers of Tiwa Savage, Korede Bello, Di’Ja, D’Prince and more – the potential is undeniable.
Rema himself believes “It still feels like a blessing to be chosen for something great, something beyond this world” as he aims to inspire other young people through his music.
