Rema's New Music Video for 'Dumebi' Is Here

Nigeria's own rising hitmaker drops the accompanying music video for his track that makes you hit 'repeat.'

It's no question that Rema's "Dumebi" is the standout track from his self-titled EP.

The 18-year-old recent signee to Mavin Records has released the music video for the track, where we see the Benin City native crushing on a taken beauty, attempting to vie for her attention on a road trip—with her boyfriend present. Cute but sad, abi? We've all been there before.

Styled in bright colors and Lagos cool (even in Nigerian streetwear brands like WAFFLESNCREAM), the music video for "Dumebi" is yet another example of how Nigerian youth are slowly making their own space for fresh, creative and quality sounds and visuals.

Watch "Dumebi," directed by Ademola Falomo, below.
