The decision to cancel the show arose amid controversy surrounding allegations of “devil-worshipping” associated with the artwork featured on his custom necklace.
It is common knowledge that Rema wears a necklace that features the image of a burning church and inverted crosses, and this was perceived as disrespectful and offensive by many Ethiopians, sparking considerable public outcry and condemnation.
Also reacting, Gifty said that Rema should be ashamed of himself for selling his soul to the devil just to be famous.
His words, “To Rema, shame on you. I couldn’t believe it until researched it myself and found out REMA wore a necklace with a burned church turned upside down, like.”
“The rate at people selling their souls to this idiotic devil eh!! Y’all think hell isn’t real…ok nahh. All these are for fame and money. SMH.”
“Then watched the video of him and Madonna hugging. I knew he had already joined the 666, As the saying goes “Show me your friends and I will tell you who you are”…..You just lost a Fan. I’m deleting all your songs from my playlist. Nobody messes with my religion (Christianity)”
