Rema to make O2 Arena return for 2024 BRIT Awards, as Burna Boy, Ashake nominated


Rema, the Nigerian artiste who received his debut BRITs nomination in the International Song of the Year Category for his global hit ‘Calm Down’, will share the stage with Jungle, Dua Lipa, Kylie Minogue and Raye, this year’s most nominated artiste.

The BRITs Awards 2024 would take place on March 2, 2024 continuing its primetime slot on ITV1 and ITVX, live from The O2 arena, following the huge success of the 2023 show moving to the weekend for the first time in BRITs history.

“I am honoured to be returning to the O2 to perform at the BRIT Awards this year,” Rema, who was nominated for International Song of the Year alongside Cameroon’s Libianca (‘People’) and South African Grammy winner Tyla (‘Water’), told Music Africa.

The International Song of the Year category also featured Billie Eilish (‘What Was I Made For?), David Kushner (‘Daylight’), Doja Cat (‘Paint the Town Red’), Jazzy (‘Giving Me’), Meghan Trainor (‘Made You Look’), Miley Cyrus (‘Flowers’), Noah Kahan (‘Stick Season’), Oliver Tree & Robin Schulz (‘Miss You’), Olivia Rodrigo (‘Vampire’), Peggy Gou (‘It Goes Like Nanana’), SZA (‘Kill Bill’) and Tate McRae (‘Greedy’).

Other shortlisted African acts at the 2024 BRITs were Nigeria’s Asake and Burna Boy, who are nominated for the International Artist of the Year Award.

They would be looking to beat Caroline Polachek, CMAT, Kylie Minogue, Lana Del Rey, Miley Cyrus, Olivia Rodrigo, SZA and Taylor Swift.

Rema would perform at the BRITs after playing in numerous European countries and states across America last year.

In November, he became the latest Afrobeats star to sell out the O2 Arena.

‘Calm Down’ was the first African track to reach one billion streams on Spotify, winning Rema his first Best Afrobeats Award at the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards and making him the longest-charting African artiste on the Billboard Top 100.

British singer-songwriter and producer, Raye, was this year’s biggest nominee with seven nods.

Central Cee and J Hus were both up for four awards each, closely trailed by Dua Lipa with three nominations.
