In the vibrant world of the Nigerian music industry, two names – Rema and Zlatan Ibile – have recently been at the center of a fiery debate concerning their wealth.

This argument was fueled by a social media firestorm where fans tried to determine who is richer. At, we aim to uncover the reasons behind this comparison.

This controversy traces back to when Zlatan and his crew reportedly mocked Rema’s unique singing style, comparing him to an ‘Indian boy’. Flash forward, Rema has not only proved his critics wrong by reaching new heights in his career but also gave a stunning performance in India, thereby increasing his international fame and earnings.

Financial Support and Promotions

A pivotal reason behind Rema’s wealth is his affiliation with Mavin Records, one of the most influential record labels in Nigeria. The company’s support and marketing strategies have contributed significantly to Rema’s escalating fame and consequent wealth.

Zlatan, on the other hand, is known for his entrepreneurial spirit, evident in his independent record label, Zanku Records. While commendable, this independence might have its financial challenges due to the costs of promotions and production.

Global Influence and Streaming Success

Rema’s music transcends Nigerian borders, leading to higher album sales and streaming numbers. His single “Calm Down” has recorded nearly 388 million streams on Spotify alone. Moreover, it became the first-ever No.1 hit on The Official MENA Chart, a new platform showcasing the top tracks in the Middle East and North Africa region.

Zlatan, despite having hit songs, hasn’t yet matched Rema’s international recognition and streaming figures.

Lucrative Endorsement Deals

Along with his growing popularity, Rema has attracted several high-value endorsement deals. These partnerships add significantly to his income and overall net worth. Zlatan also has his share of endorsements, but they may not be on the same scale as Rema’s.

Financial Reality

  • Rema’s net worth is primarily amassed from:
    • Earnings from his record label – Mavin Records
    • International music sales and streaming
    • High-value endorsement deals
  • Zlatan’s wealth is largely acquired from:
    • Revenue from his independent record label – Zanku Records
    • Local and international music sales
    • Various endorsement deals

In the grand scheme, Rema’s diversified income streams, coupled with his international success and high-profile endorsements, may position him as being financially more prosperous than Zlatan.
