Temilade Openiyi, 26, popularly known as Tems who recently had a Grammy nomination on the category of Best Global Music performance for her notable contribution on Wizkid's fourth studio album "Made In Lagos", has recorded a successful career run after being featured on Drake's most recent album - Certified Lover boy, for the track titled "Fountain".

Consecutively, Tems rocked on the Billboard HOT 100 based on her delightful contributions on these records and have raked ambiance inclusively, before she also accompanied the most recent release of her sophomore extended titled "If Orange Was A Place", which follows the sequel of her debut project in 2020 titled 'For Broken Ears.'

Tems has become a part of the most significant African female creators shaping the perspective of the Afro-culture, its listeners, and creators.

She has also become a part of the most-streamed Nigerian creators on Spotify, shedding a positive light on the culture and should have to inspire other upcoming female creators. Tems is far from using s3x appeal to endorse influence into the culture as well as other female creators could learn from her art and follow suit into rocking such an ambiance as Tems has done. She has more.

Tems is a superstar. You know this and you can't deny it as the truth. Remember, she has no official album yet but the influence she commands is nothing but the kind, a superstar would command, just as superstar Wizkid has always commanded since 2010 to date.

Meanwhile, she is part of a paramount role in unlocking great possibilities for the newer Gen Z creators, being visible and making them appreciate the reality of their art, through the kind of music they create. Tems focuses on putting out her best as it is what has kept speaking for her and taking her into large music spaces during and after her rookie season. Now, She's a veteran, and I put together an acronym that portrays the image she represents in the Nigerian music landscape and beyond.


T - Threshold:

The talents of super creative Tems could be seen as a threshold through the eyes of an ambitious creator. Her art is laid to unlock the potentials of other creators, and to help them positively influence society coupled with a range of female creators she inspires. I had an interview with a young female Port-Harcourt creator named Arlene, who expressed her love for Tem's music and style. She appreciates that Tems doesn't use s3x appeal and affirms learning from that culture.

Tems is far from using s3x appeal to endorse influence into the culture as well as other female creators could learn from her art and follow suit into rocking such an ambiance as Tems has done. She has more.

However, Tems is a replica of an entrance for other creatives to follow and embrace her path. According to the English dictionary, a threshold is a point of beginning and it is what it is for Tem's career which a host of other female creators could solely depend on.


E - Energy:

Remember, Tems refers herself to as the leading vibe; it is simply the replica of the image she represents. And you can feel it through her succulent musical creations, the vibe she delivers and performs with. The energy she dishes out often even as it was evident on her biggest records both on Wizkid's Essence, the remix, and Drake's Fountain off his most recent Certified Loverboy, album.


M - Maverick:

According to the English dictionary, a Maverick is someone who doesn't abide by rules. It could also be referred to as a rebel. And Tems creates her own rules and abides by them, she calls her fans rebels and it is one of the most reasons she's the leading vibe and you can attest to all that.



S - Superstar:

Tems is a superstar. You know this and you can't deny it as the truth. Remember, she has no official album yet but the influence she commands is nothing but the kind, a superstar would command, just as superstar Wizkid has always commanded since 2010 to date. Moreover, she has more milestones to cross in her career lifespan and also for us to chronicle alongside.
