Rema currently doesn’t have any siblings. He supposedly had only one sibling who died while they were young, thus little is known about him.
The singer was reportedly linked to Nimiie and media figure Diana Eneje, but given that Rema is currently single, these rumors don’t seem to be true. He previously said he would be open to a relationship when he finally met the right person.
The extraordinarily gifted artist makes an effort to keep his private life secret from bloggers and influencers. Since he first became well-known, Rema has not shown any of his landed residences to his fan base. Rema has enough money to purchase a magnificent home anyplace in Lagos, but he just prefers to keep things quiet.
Rema has a sizable collection of vehicles. He received a BMW beamer from the BMW Club of Nigeria in exchange for using his well-known song “Beamer (Bad Boys)” to promote the BMW brand.
Rema owns a GAC SUV as well, which he was awarded the spacious SUV after winning the 2019 Headies’ second-place prize. The GAC SUV’s 5.7-liter V8 engine provides better acceleration. The acceleration has given the GAC SUV additional power.
The artist has prospered since breaking into the field. Rema’s current estimated net worth of $1,000,000 comes only from his music streaming services, appearances in public, live performances, partnerships, and brand deals.
