Popular Nigerian singer and rave of the moment, Rema’s upcoming show in Ethiopia has reportedly been cancelled.
According to source, the music icon was scheduled to perform in Ethiopia at the Sheraton Hotel in Addis Ababa on September 9, 2023. But, rumour has it that the hotel’s management postponed the performance due to religious considerations.
Rema’s cancelled concert in Ethiopia came as a result of his recently unveiled necklace, which showed the image of a church burning upside down as well as inverted crosses. It was reported that the music star was accused of being a devil worshipper.
Reportedly, the Ethiopian people and the hotel responded by cancelling Rema’s performance because the picture on his necklace upset the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo church.
In a video, a woman from Ethiopia commented about Rema’s cancelled concert in her country as a guest on Nigerian media sensation, Daddy Freeze’s Instagram live session.
She claims that a press release was actually issued to that effect since Rema’s jewelry raised questions about his possible demon worship.
In her words, “They made a statement, like a press release in Ethiopia about Rema. Yes, you can imagine, it’s a very big deal.”
“They’re basically saying he is worshipping the devil because of what he has on his neck. And to be honest, I never thought of it myself. And there’s more to it; to be honest.”
