Nigerian singer, Rema, says he is cancelling all performances in December to focus on his health.
The afrobeats star announced the decision in a post via his Instagram story.
He wrote: “Breaks my heart to say that I won’t be performing anywhere this December. I have been touring and I’ve ignored my health and I need time to recuperate. 2024 we go again. .”
Reacting, to Rema’s post, afrobeats star, Davido, in a post via his Instagram story, wrote: “The job ain’t easy, physically and mentally. You’ve done Africa and the world proud beyond expectations.
“Get some rest king @heisrema, come back stronger.”
Rema is best known internationally for his hit song Calm Down, which has smashed multiple streaming and chart records.
The 23-year-old also recently gave a dramatic performance at the London’s 20,000-seater O2 Arena.
His now-cancelled tour dates for December were booked for Abuja, Benin, and Lagos.
