Award winning Nigerian musician, Temilade Openiyi who is better known as Tems has written about her music career attaining the heights that she has never imagined.

The multi-talented Nigerian singer-songwriter and music producer took to her Twitter platform on Tuesday afternoon to reflect on music career thus far. In her post on social media, the songstress who headlined the 2022 Global Citizen Festival in Accra, Ghana revealed that music has continued to create timeless masterpieces with her lyricism and musical content.

Tems mentioned that ‘music done take me go where, I no know’, an allusion to the viral video of a police officer who was lamenting after an erring driver refused to stop the vehicle after she entered his vehicle to apprehend him.

God’s doing!! All the glory in the world belongs to Him”

Equally, in 2021, Tems‘ collaboration with Wizkid earned her a Billboard Top 10 hit.
