Victor Osimhen, a striker for the Super Eagles and Napoli, has ranked Afrobeats sensation Rema in the international music scene on a par with Burna Boy, Wizkid, and Davido.
Grammy-nominated singers Asake, Seyi Vibez, and Omah Lay, according to the African Player of the Year, are just beginning to explore the possibilities of their careers in terms of global dominance.
In a recent interview with CBS Sports Golazo, Osimhen expressed hope that Asake, Seyi Vibez, and Omah Lay would surpass Wizkid and Davido in popularity shortly. He said:
“Aside from Wizkid and Davido, we have Asake, Seyi Vibez, Omah Lay, and Rema. Rema is one of the biggest artists in the world now,” he said.
Rema is there [top of global music] but these guys that I called, Omah Lay, Asake, and Seyi Vibez are also on the come up. In a few years, they are really going to burst out just like Davido, Wizkid, and Burna Boy.
“So, for me, it’s really good to be coming from Nigeria.”
Since Nigeria has advanced to the round of 16, where they will face Cameroon, Osimhen is currently playing for the national team.
