Rema opens up on why he wears eyeglasses


Afropop sensation, Divine Ikubor, popularly known as Rema, has unveiled a personal detail that has intrigued many of his fans.

In an exclusive interview with Capital Xtra at the illustrious red-carpet event of the 2024 Brit Awards held in London, United Kingdom on Saturday, March 2, 2024, the Calm Down hitmaker disclosed the reason behind his distinctive eyewear.

During the interview, the host seized the opportunity to delve into Rema's personal life, urging him to share a secret he had never revealed before. Prompted by the inquiry, Rema hesitated briefly before candidly admitting, "I use glasses. I'm suffering from long-sightedness."

Long-sightedness, also known as hyperopia, is a common refractive error where distant objects can be seen more clearly than nearby ones. It often necessitates the use of corrective eyewear to aid vision.

Rema's revelation sheds light on the personal challenges he faces behind the glitz and glamour of the music industry. Despite his meteoric rise to fame, the Nigerian-born singer-songwriter remains candid about his health struggles.
