Rema not being in Gagamel Crew not news anymore. The Kukaliba singer was expelled from the group by the Gagamel CEO, Bebe Cool using facebook after he learnt of her forthcoming concert on Oct 18, 2013 that has since been shifted from Club Obligatto to Hotel Equatorial Parking.
Last Thursday, Bebe was asked by NTV's Douglas Lwanga what Rema's future was and this was his response: "Let her focus on the forward by looking at the past mistakes. My design for her was totally different, I never made Rema to go jumping on weddings as a business, never, that disorganized my plans."
"I thought I could make an artiste that I can send to Channel O, because Rema sings better than I do when it comes to voices, you want it in New York, Nigeria and not at a wedding in Kyaliwajala."
Matters were made worse during the Kokodiosis concert when Bebe introduced a 10-year-old Congolese girl she had discovered from the on-going NTV Talent XP auditions: "With this young girl, I have the new Rema," Bebe told the guests. Rema has been busy working on her songs for the Kukaliba Concert not having time to respond to her being sacked.
But this time around, she made it clear that no one can bring you down or even make you feel less about yourself. "Lovely people, do what you want and say what you feel because, it's a matter of believing in yourself and no one, I repeat it NO ONE should bring you down or make you feel less about your self. Kukaliba Concert 18th Oct. @ Equatorial parking."
Since her being sacked from Gagamel, fans have been supportive and showing her love. Regarding her replacement, most of her fans insist, she is irreplaceable. Meanwhile, on the very day of Rema's Concert, The Tusker Project Fame judge, Juliana Kanyomozi will be holding her second concert since 2007 at serena Hotel and what is more amazing is that the songs; 'Eddiba' and 'Kukaliba' are similar in a way.
Rema has some wedding do's lined up for this month, and on Oct 12, she will be with Eddy Kenzo at The 'Omubimba' show in the UK before coming back to Uganda for the 'Kukaliba' concert. END
