Nigerian singer and Mavin Records act, Rema has opened up on the fact that he was a thief during his days as a teenager before he walked into the life of fame in his music career.
According to the 20-year old ‘Dumebi’ sensation when he was 17 back in 2017, he was responsible for a missing laptop which belongs to one of his friend whose name was revealed as ‘Eric’.
Rema’s tweet which sounded funny as well as a life-touching issue to his twitter followers, recounts how he stole Eric’s laptop to help his pregnant mother when she was abandoned by friends and members of her family.
In his words, Rema stated that people made fun of his mum so he had to prove the ‘family bad name’ wrong by funding her hospital bills as the only man which pushed him to get quick money by becoming a thief at 17 before he got famous in music.
His tweet reads below;
Eric, Sorry I stole your Laptop in 2017, I know you were trying to help me. My Mom had a child on the way, I was the only man in my family. They made fun of her because she got pregnant, I wanted to prove them wrong bro, I had to do it.
