Dremo has been in the music industry for over 6 years now. Dremo has been pushing his craft before he got signed to Davido’s music label (DMW). He had “Normal Level” and “OBT” out which was growing and spreading and got the attention of Davido. Davido spotted Dremo’s talent and reached out to him. The next day, Davido signed Dremo to his music label. Despite Dremo’s incredible music career, he is still not in the mainstream and where rappers as talented as he is are.
In the past six years of his music Journey, Dremo has released 2 music projects. “Codename Vol. 1” and “Icen B4 The Cake” were the names of the projects. The Codename project was an incredible album. It had major genres of music like Rap, Trap, Afrobeats, R&B and many more. Furthermore, it showed Dremo’s ability to be able to switch between rap and singing and excel at both. He also showed his intelligence on every track as he delivered quality on each track.
After the Codename project, Dremo released two smashing singles titled “Mirror” and “Ringer” featuring Reekado Banks. “Mirror” was a song by Dremo to mirror the problems we are facing in Nigeria. In the song, he delivered his message with a well placed flows and perfectly laid punchlines set to drive the message home. Also, in Ringer, he gave a banger for the clubs and parties. The song did quite well on countdowns and various charts but not as well as it should for a masterpiece like “Ringer”.
Despite all these factors, Dremo seems to be struggling in the music scene despite his brilliance and talent. Many overlook Dremo’s music despite how good he is. This factor isn’t really his fault. It’s hard for a rapper to be mainstream in Nigeria because Rap is not our major genre, because of this factor, many rappers suffer.
Dremo is one of the rappers facing the consequences of this factor. But I believe with his Consistency, Intelligence and talent, he will be able to breakthrough as a rap artiste.
