I didn’t realise how far I’ve come till I left Nigeria – Tems


Fast-rising singer Temilade Openiyi popularly known as Tems has said that she didn’t realise how far she had come till she left Nigeria.

The ‘Essence’ star made this known in an Instagram post on Saturday as she celebrated the one year anniversary of her debut EP Broken Tears.

“Gang, It’s one year of For Broken Ears today. Really Feels like ages ago. I cannot tell it all what the Most High has done for me. Turned me into a trailblazer.

“Though we are all mad, I have decided not to disguise anymore. I didn’t realise just how far I have come till I left home. Nigeria does that to you. Pray we all see the power we have but we’re all too busy disguising. No more. I enter the door with my full chest.

“If you are seeing this, own your madness. And let your light shine. Thank you for the abundance of love. I appreciate you gang,” she wrote.

The 26-year-old gained international recognition after featuring in Wizkid’s hit song, ‘Essence’, which gained major success worldwide.

Tems recently met with American singer Rihanna at an event in Los Angeles.
