Rema has alté traits, but ultimately, he's just living

Is Rema alté?

Rema has alté traits, but ultimately, he's just living
Earlier this morning, Nigerian music critic, Joey Akan asked a key question on his Twitter page (@JoeyAkan), ‘Is Rema alté?’

It's a question we've all been asking.

The responses he got to this question ranged from pretty damning to very dynamically answered. Meanwhile on June 7, 2019, during the recording of the latest episode of Loose Talk Podcast featuring DRB Lasgidi (BOJ, Teezee and Fresh L) the originators of alte, the issue came up.

Ayomide Tayo triggered the issue and speculated that Rema actually claim to be alté.

BOJ disagreed and he had a good point. Alté is an intimate circle of people who relate based on their shared values, similar lifestyle choices, similar beliefs and ideals.

BOJ’s group member, Teezee was measured with his take. He opined that "lifestyle-wise," Rema might be alte, but those lifestyle choices are a natural reflection of the generation Rema finds himself. This then leads to the question…



What is alté?

While this question can only be sufficiently answered by intimate members of the movement, we can define alté as an avant-garde Nigerian movement that places an emphasis on freewill and a refusal to act or in the way that society deems ‘appropriate.’ They have shown that ‘good’ or ‘beauty’ could be found in anything. 

The movement impacts fashion and style, lifestyle choices, music, interests and so forth. While certain sounds are peculiar to alté acts, alté is not really a genre of music. Alté acts make music across different genres and styles – a focal point of the freewill that is peculiar to the movement.
