Addressing the allegations which stemmed from his signature bat emojis, he denied being a member of any secret cult, as the singer urged his oldest fans to educate the new ones about his background and heritage.
Further defending himself, the Mavins singer added that he works too hard to create art for people to give the glory to diabolical shit. Rema surprised many as he declared love for God, crowning him the King.
