After planting his feet firmly in Afrobeats mainstream, Rema released his debut album ‘Raves & Roses’ which has gone on to make Afrobeats history with the smash hit ‘Calm Down’ enjoying massive global success.

In another giant stride, Rema’s debut album has been declared platinum in Canada thereby making ‘Raves & Roses’ the first Afrobeats album to achieve this feat.

The announcement was made on the website of Music Canada on July 17, 2023, after ‘Raves & Roses’ surpassed 80,000 units in sales.
