In ‘Charm’, Rema employs pidgin English to implore his love interest to draw closer, seemingly for dancing or comfort. He also boasts about his abundant wealth, suggesting he can better provide for the lady, who seems to be older than him, than her own father could.
Rema’s lyrics include lines such as, “Come here, wetin dey worry you? Bring body make I rock am, yeah, yeah. I know you senior me. I get money pass your papa.
Wetin you want wey I no fit do for you? Why you wan dey buga wọn? Shey you be Kizz Daniel ni? You better drop your body armor,” which have garnered attention.
Speaking on the HonestBunch podcast, Blackface expressed his view that Rema “lacks moral values.” The veteran singer firmly stated that he would not support a union between his daughter and a man with such a “disrespectful mindset.”
Blackface remarked, “Fine girl wetin dey worry you, you don dey craze for your head, I get money pass your papa. I dey talk to you, you no see say I get money pass your papa. Na that kind boy my daughter wan carry come house for me.”
He further commented on the absence of moral values in Rema’s lyrics, suggesting that when artists prioritize monetary gain over genuine passion for the craft, it results in a lack of respect for the art form.
