In a recent interview on the Honest Bunch podcast, veteran Nigerian singer Blackface made headlines by expressing his reservations about the idea of his daughter marrying someone like the rising star Rema, citing concerns about the singer’s apparent lack of morals.
Blackface took the opportunity during the interview to address the moral values he believes are lacking in some contemporary artists.
He pointed to Rema and his lyrics as an example, particularly citing a line from Rema’s song “Charm” where the singer boldly proclaims, “I get money pass your papa.”
The singer concluded that he could not fathom his daughter bringing a man into their family home who would utter such a statement.
Blackface’s comments highlight his concerns about Rema’s character and the influence such lyrics may have on the younger generation.
According to Blackface, it is essential for artists to uphold certain moral standards, and the lyrics they sing are often a reflection of their true character.
He believes that Rema’s lyrics reveal a lack of respect and humility, qualities he would expect in someone who may become a part of his family through his daughter.
This statement from Blackface has sparked a heated debate among fans, music enthusiasts, and the general public.
