“I am so proud to call you my brother” – Crayon celebrates Rema after his performance at Ballon d’Or award
Nigerian singer, Charles Chibuezechukwu, popularly known as Crayon has taken to social media to express his joy and celebrate his labelmate and colleague, Rema, after his Ballon d’Or performance.
Recall that on Monday, October 30, Rema brought pride to Nigerians during his performance at the Ballon d’Or ceremony in Paris, France.
The Afrobeat artist turned the gathering into a spectacular performance, leaving attendees speechless with his version of the hit song “Calm Down.”
The singer’s performance at the Ballon d’Or proved to be a historic triumph for Nigeria, as he became the first Afrobeat talent to perform there.
In a widely shared video, Rema could be seen shaking hands with several football stars and icons.
Reacting to the performance, Crayon revealed that he felt chills when Rema shook hands with Mbappe.
He said he felt proud of him and referred to him as his brother, praising the extraordinary achievement.
“See my brother for the Ballon d’Or. I’m so proud to call you my brother! What an amazing performance! When you shake Mbappe, I get goosebumps! Cold enters my spine! Rema.”
A while back, Crayon revealed that he was accommodated by his colleague and labelmate Rema for two years prior to his rise to fame.
Following his signing to Blowtime Entertainment, an imprint of Mavin Records, in May 2019, Crayon’s career soared.
The “Ijo Labalaba” crooner revealed in a recent interview with MTV Base Africa that Rema was significant to his successful career.
“Shoutout to Rema mehn. That’s my brother for life. Rema was a big support as well. He was very instrumental. You know what’s crazy? I stayed in his house for two years.”
