Performing at the iconic arena, Rema opened his act by performing his latest hit, “DND” as he made a dramatic entrance on a stationary horse, wearing a mask and black costume.
Before the performance, Rema expressed his gratitude to fellow artist Burna Boy for his support and inspiration, before going on stage.
“Before I get on stage, I want to say a big thank you to @burnaboy for bringing me on stage 2 years ago,” Rema wrote. “Today it’s my turn to conquer that same stage and I wish you were here to share this moment with me. Regardless, I’m grateful for the motivation,” he tweeted.
