The video went viral and took over the media space, and eventually got to D'Prince who was fascinated by the brilliant performance displayed by the lad. Just like a dream come true for Rema, he received a direct message from D’Prince himself and that was how his breakthrough story started.
D‘prince who had been looking forward to building himself a team of his own boys quickly harnessed the opportunity and in no time travelled to Benin to get the teenager.
When they got to Lagos, Rema was put in the studio with an Afrobeats producer to further showcase his talent. After the session, D’Prince took the music to his older brother and Mavin Records C.E.O, Don Jazzy who was deeply impressed by the new performance.

On March 22, 2019, Don Jazzy announced that Rema had been officially signed to Jonzing World, a subsidiary of Mavin Records (also known as the Supreme Mavin Dynasty).
