In response to criticism that followed their performances at the Afronation concert in Portugal, afrobeat artists Rema and Omah Lay have responded.
The vocalists were among the artists that took the stage on Friday for the concert’s first day.
A portion of their followers, however, were unimpressed with their performances and resorted to social media to express their displeasure.
Both singers were criticised in a popular video by a woman who claimed they weren’t good enough vocalists.
“My honest assessment of Afronation from day one… My biggest criticism of this festival thus far is my beautiful West African artists that I saw yesterday, especially Omah Lay and partially Rema, she had said. The location is stunning and the energy is incredible.
What’s up with you not singing? We travelled all the way to Portugal to witness you perform live since you are vocalists and use your voice as your primary instrument. Sincerely, I’m not happy.
Rema responded in a tweet, writing that the event’s outcomes were due to the subpar sound arrangement.
“Apologies to you and all the fans that feel this way,” Omah Lay wrote. I wish I could have given you more, but since my IEM wasn’t given sound, I had to do the entire show without being able to hear myself.
