“This very day Last Year, I was sitting in a prison in Uganda bonding with women and kids. I almost can’t believe the things I’ve seen so far. All I can say is God is too awesome and He will always have the last and final laugh,” she tweeted.

It would be recalled that Tems and fellow Nigerian singer Omah Lay were arrested on Sunday, December 13, 2020, for performing at an ‘unauthorized concert’ and disobeying COVID-19 protocols.
