Rema becomes first African artist to win Chinese music award
Rema, the acclaimed Nigerian singer, has made history as the first African musician to earn a coveted Chinese music award. This huge milestone was reached when his tune, the ‘Calm Down‘ remix featuring American singer Selena Gomez, won Best Collaboration of the Year at the 2024 Hito Music Awards in the Republic of China.
Hosted by DJ Andy and presented by Hit FM Taiwan, the award ceremony served as a platform to acknowledge outstanding musical collaborations from across the globe. Rema’s win not only showcases his exceptional talent but also underscores the increasing international appeal of African music.
With this award, Rema joins the esteemed ranks of American and British artists previously recognized at the Taiwanese award ceremony.
While Rema’s win is a historic moment for African music, the event also saw American global pop sensation Taylor Swift emerge as one of the most celebrated international artists, adding to her extensive list of accolades with over six awards.
Rema’s groundbreaking success at the 2024 Hito Music Awards demonstrates the increasing globalization of music and the transformative power of collaboration to bring together artists and fans across continents.
As he continues to excel on the international stage, Rema cements his position as a trailblazer in the global music industry, inspiring fellow artists and fans with his remarkable talent and groundbreaking achievements.
