Nigeria’s globe-trotting musical talent, Jonzing World star Rema, and American pop star Selena Gomez have won a 2023 MTV Video Music Awards.

The duo took home the award in the inaugural Best Afrobeats category for their smash hit “Calm Down.”

The song pipped Ayra Starr’s “Rush”, Burna Boy’s “It’s Plenty”, Davido feat. Musa Key’s “Unavailable”, Libianca’s “People”, Wizkid feat. Ayrra Starr’s “2 Sugar,” and Fireboy DML’s “Bandana” for Best Afrobeats.

“Calm Down” was also nominated in the “song of the year” category and the “best collaboration” category.

The win also followed the announcement by Spotify on Tuesday that Rema had become the first African artist to garner a billion streams on his collaboration with Gomez.

In his speech, Rema thanked his fans, his team, Selena Gomez, and Nigerian music icons 2Baba, Don Jazzy, D’Banj, D’Prince, Runtown, Timaya, Wizkid, Burnaboy, and Davido for their pioneering work in Afrobeats and also thanked the new generation for their efforts in continuing the trend to take Afrobeats to greater heights.

First released on February 11, 2022, “Calm Down” is the second single from Rema’s debut studio album, “Rave & Roses.”

The remix with Selena Gomez was released on August 25, 2022, and since then, it has been a global hit. Rema posted a celebratory message on his social media after he earned his first career Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hit with the remix of the global record “Calm Down.”
