In an interview with metro.co.uk she said, ‘Coming up as a Black woman, it was very important for me to be myself. That was a conversation I had to have with myself before I even stepped into this industry. That’s just one thing I wasn’t willing to compromise and I wasn’t willing to change for any job. I wear a lot of emotions on my face and I can’t hide it.’
Praising her 1Xtra drivetime predecessor, Remi added: ‘Coming through there were a lot of amazing people that gave me opportunities, and Reece Parkinson is one of them. He’s one of the reasons I was able to step into the BBC Radio 1Xtra building. People were receptive to how much I wanted it and for that, I’ll always be grateful.
‘Yes, I got a few no’s. There are a few emails I’m still waiting for a response from since 2017 but it’s OK. I don’t see no as a no, I see it as a next opportunity. It might not have gone the way I wanted it to go but I’m a strong believer in the next opportunity and creating the space that you want to see.’
