Nigerian Afrorave music connoisseur, Divine Ikubor, generally known as Rema has sent a heartwarming memorandum to a mob of Iranian ladies who were arrested for dancing to his song.
A group of Iranian teen girls who shared a video dancing to Rema’s ‘Calm Down’ were declared to have been put behind bars and pressured into apologising for the act.

According to a tweet from the Twitter account, Shahrak Ekbatan, the five girls were first brought in and given a warning, then called again and detained for two days before being compelled to make a coerced confession.
According to Iranian laws, women are banned from dancing in public, so the five friends made the video as part of an activist movement fighting for women’s rights.
In response to the incident, Rema took to Twitter to send a special shout out the girls and other Iranian women fighting for a better world, stating that he is inspired by them.
He tweeted, “To all the beautiful women who are fighting for a better world, I am inspired by you, I sing for you and I dream with you. ✊🏿🤍🇮🇷.”
