Nigerian Singer Rema Squares Up Against Lawro to Predict Weekend’s EPL Matches
Fomer US President Barack Obama listens to Rema whose real name is real name Divine Ikubor and has followed MaanchesterUnited since he was a boy growing up in Benin City, Nigeria, and got to know their star players by playing video games with his older brother.
“I love United because of him,” the 20-year-old told BBC Sport. “He used to play Fifa against me as United, and he would always win – so I always saw them as the winning team!
“We ended up having arguments over who would get to play as them – but, when I got the chance, I got attached to players like Carlos Tevez, Cristiano Ronaldo, Edwin van der Sar and Wayne Rooney, before I even saw them play in real life.”
Rema has a good reason to ask for a rematch after some his songs were included in the soundtrack for Fifa 21 when it was released last month – but he might not pick United next time he plays.
“I know we’re not doing so good at the moment,” he added. “Not compared to those days anyway. The way things are going this season, I am not too happy.”
