Recently, Rema achieved a remarkable feat by breaking a 41-year-old record set by legendary musician King Sunny Ade.
King Sunny Ade’s iconic album “Juju Music” held the record for the longest-running Nigerian project on the US Billboard 200 chart for an impressive 29 weeks since its release in 1982.
This achievement stood strong for 41 years until Rema entered the scene with his debut album “Rave & Roses.”
The young artist’s album has spent an astonishing 30th week on the Billboard 200 chart, surpassing King Sunny Ade’s record.
Rema’s accomplishment is particularly noteworthy as he was born 18 years after King Sunny Ade’s record-setting album hit the charts.
