Nigeria Rema Up Against World Renown Lawro To Predict Premier League Result! by ILoveDemMANNA: 2:01am On Oct 16, 2020
This is simply top-notch for Rema, no Nigerian star has ever had the opportunity to do this alongside Lawro of BBC Football.
Lawro predict alongside world famous celebrities in all aspects of life.
This is a very huge one for Rema to be invited to predict Premier League result for people all over the world through BBC Website.
N.B : They are predicting just for the fun of the game and not for betting, take note!

The 237th Merseyside derby takes place at Goodison Park on Saturday - but will it be the Reds or the Blues who are celebrating afterwards?

"Everton have surprised everyone," said former Liverpool defender Mark Lawrenson. "I know they have got some very good players but I thought their new signings would take longer to settle in.

"James Rodriguez looks like a real player and the game looks very easy for him. Allan and Abdoulaye Doucoure have done great as well and, now they have got Dominic Calvert-Lewin scoring, they look a real handful.

"Defensively, they might have some tough days to come, but they have been very good so far and probably even manager Carlo Ancelotti has been surprised by how quickly it has all clicked for them.

"They are top of the table for a reason and it looks like they are going to give Liverpool a close game."

Lawro is making predictions for all 380 Premier League matches this season, against a variety of guests.

This weekend, he is up against singer, rapper, Afrobeat star and Manchester United fan Rema.

Rema's track 'Iron Man' appeared on Barack Obama's 2019 summer playlist when the former president of the United States revealed what he had been listening to in August that year

Rema - real name Divine Ikubor - has followed United since he was a boy growing up in Benin City, Nigeria, and got to know their star players by playing video games with his older brother.


"I love United because of him," the 20-year-old told BBC Sport. "He used to play Fifa against me as United, and he would always win - so I always saw them as the winning team!

"We ended up having arguments over who would get to play as them - but, when I got the chance, I got attached to players like Carlos Tevez, Cristiano Ronaldo, Edwin van der Sar and Wayne Rooney, before I even saw them play in real life."

Rema has a good reason to ask for a rematch after some his songs were included in the soundtrack for Fifa 21 when it was released last month - but he might not pick United next time he plays.

"I know we're not doing so good at the moment," he added. "Not compared to those days anyway. The way things are going this season, I am not too happy."

Rema's biggest hit 'Dumebi' has been streamed more than 20m times on Spotify

As well as United, Rema grew up watching Nigeria stars Jay-Jay Okocha and Nwankwo Kanu - although he was never able to pull off their kind of tricks himself.

"I used to play every day with my friends after school," he explained. "We would go and play barefoot in the field.

"Jay-Jay was my favourite. I idolised him and and I wanted to be a striker too, but sadly I would always end up in goal because I wasn't that good."

A correct result (picking a win, draw or defeat) is worth 10 points. The exact score earns 40 points.

Lawro  (born 2 June 1957) is a former Republic of Ireland international footballer who played as a defender for Liverpool, among others, during the 1970s and 1980s.
After a short career as a manager, he has since been a radio, television and internet pundit for the BBC, TV3, BT Sport and Today FM.
Born and raised in England, Lawrenson qualified to play for the Republic of Ireland through his grandfather, Thomas Crotty, who was born in Waterford.

Just surprised why Rema predicted Newcastle to defeat Man Utd 3.1.... and he says he is a Manchester United fan.
Well, maybe he is only trying to be realistic.

Nice one for Rema. It will really enhance his popularity.

On the predictions, he's definitely beating Lawro this weekend.... although that Arsenal and Leceister prediction looks amusing grin
