Rema’s Soundgasm is making waves internationally and this articles shows how his music is trending globally.
Divine Ikubor, known professionally as Rema, is a Nigerian singer-songwriter and rapper, who released a single song track called Soundgasm.
Produced by London, ‘Soundgasm’ registers as Rema’s second official single for the year, a follow up to the Don Jazzy-produced hit record, ‘Bounce’.
According to Rema, ‘Soundgasm’ is derived from the merger of two words which are “sound” and “orgasm”. It’s literally S3x translated into sound frequency. It’s a record that disposes spiritual vibrations and creates Euphoria through the ears.
The Dutch Single Top 100 or Single Top 100 is a Dutch chart, based on official physical single sales, legal downloads and since July 2013 streaming and composed by Dutch Charts. It is one of the four official charts, the other three being the Dutch Top 40, the Mega Top 30 and the 538 Top 50. The difference is that these charts also include airplay data. The list is especially intended for the music industry and those who take an interest in charts. In Dutch TV programmes the Single Top 100 is often cited, although it has not been broadcast since December 2006.
Rema’s Soundgasm is also making waves in France. It is now number 183 on the France SNEP Chart. The National Syndicate of Phonographic Publishing (French: Syndicat national de l’édition phonographique; SNEP) is the inter-professional organisation that protects the interests of the French record industry.

Rap, pop and r&b are less and less mainly Anglo-Saxon affairs. Through digital media, rap, pop and R&B artists from all over the world are breaking through worldwide. One of them is 20-year-old Rema from Nigeria with good songs and a unique style: a mix of freestyle, trap and Afro-Beat, called ‘Afrorave’ by himself. The album Rema Compilation is a collection of previously released singles and precedes a debut album. Rema is now a superstar in her own country. With his catchy beats and easy-to-hear voice, it won’t be long before the rest of the world follows.
The Edison Award is an annual Dutch music prize awarded for outstanding achievements in the music industry. It is comparable to the American Grammy Award.
