American super star singer and actress, Selena Gomez has revealed that she has been a number fan of Nigerian afrobeats sensation, Divine Ikubor, known professionally as Rema even before they collaborated on the ‘Calm Down’ remix.
According to Gomez, she first fell in love with Rema’s song, ‘Runaway,’ before the “Rave Lorde” contacted her for a remix of ‘Calm Down,’ just as she also added that she accepted to work with Rema because she loves his demeanour, stressing that she “just wanna take care of him.”
The 32-year-old singer, who said she “just wanna take care of him.” made this disclosure while appearing in the latest episode of the VA 100 New York Podcast.
“I actually fell in love with the song ‘Runaway’ before I fell in love with ‘Calm down.’ I literally was a fan of his. But it [remixing ‘Calm Down’] was all like kind of his idea.
“When I met him, I honestly was so impressed by his demeanour, how humble and how grateful he is for every moment. And, I just couldn’t pick someone else who deserves all this success in the world. He is so kind. I don’t know, I just wanna like take care of him [laughs],” Gomez said.
