Nigerian artist Rema has achieved a remarkable feat by selling out the O2 Arena in London for his concert on November 14, 2023. This accomplishment is particularly noteworthy as it establishes him as the youngest African artist to fill the renowned venue.
The O2 Arena stands as one of the world’s largest indoor arenas, boasting a capacity exceeding 20,000 attendees. Over the years, it has hosted performances by iconic figures in the music industry, including Beyoncé, Adele, and Ed Sheeran.
Rema’s capacity crowd at the O2 Arena serves as a clear indication of his widespread global appeal. With a string of chart-topping hits such as “Iron Man,” “Soundgasm,” and “Calm Down,” Rema has solidified his presence in the music scene. Additionally, his collaborations with major industry names like Chris Brown and Selena Gomez have further enhanced his status.
Joining the ranks of Nigerian luminaries such as Wizkid, Davido, Burna Boy, and Asake, who have also achieved sold-out performances at the O2 Arena, Rema’s success underscores his position among elite Nigerian artists. This milestone not only marks a significant accomplishment for the young singer but also foreshadows even greater triumphs in his future career.
