Local singer Chris Evans last night made news at Rema’s concert at Hotel Africana when he fixed Eddy Kenzo into his collabo with ‘Linda’ collabo Rema, a thing that got Rema upset. This was all amidst the love Rema was showing her husband Dr.Hamza who was present at the concert.
While doing their collaboration, ‘Linda’ Chris Evans started his verse like “This is how Kenzo used to sing”, the more Rema played it cool the more Evans insisted on singing the annoying verse.
The quickest way to ruin a good mood is to bring an ex into the picture. That was a lesson singer Chris Evans learnt the hard way after he was almost thrown off stage while performing at Rema’s concert yesterday evening at Hotel Africana.
Evans had been invited on stage by Rema to perform their collabo, “Linda”. He however went off script, and changed lyrics of the song mentioning Kenzo, something that did not sit well with the “Siri Muyembe” hitmaker.
Rema was clearly not pleased with Chris Evans’ actions, and what he thought would please the audience quickly backfired.
“Isn’t it how he used to sing he asked” at this moment Rema was seemingly losing her cool and she asked him to apologize.
Evans further added that Hamza was Kenzo’s messenger and this is where Rema couldn’t hold it any more. She dragged Evans off stage as he tried hesitating while apologizing.
Evans was let back onstage but Rema chose not to continue singing the sing as she let him sing the rest of it alone. She later left him in stage to do his single!
A number of people have come out with mixed reactions about the incident.
She halted the performance and almost slapped Evans as he dragged him all the way towards the stairs leading off stage. All the while the crowd watched on with bated breath as he tried to apologize.
Although she let him continue singing, the chemistry between the two singers was all lost after that. Attempts to try to perform together were met with hostility and Rema was visibly livid through out the performance of the song. In fact, Rema did not sing for the remaining part of the song. She let Evans carry on alone, and later exited the stage to take a breather and make a change in a wardrobe for the second part of her show.
Evans performed just one more song after the incident and left the stage with embarrassment written all over his face.
