Crazy things are haaaapening!
Crazy things are really happening for Tems. Last year was a phenomenal year for Tems and it seems, 2023 has already started off on the right note.
On the 5th of February, 2023 Temilade took home her very first Grammy award!
Tems, who was featured on Future’s “Wait for You” alongside Drake, won the award for Best Rap Melodic Performance and was also nominated for the Best Rap Song award.
This remarkable achievement places Tems in a league of her own, as she now joins the legendary Nigerian-British singer Sade Adu as one of the few female artists to have won a Grammy.
Sade Adu, who won the Best New Artist award in 1986, has long been a source of inspiration for many musicians, and Tems’ win serves as a reminder of the amazing talent and diversity that exists within the music industry. Tems’ win is a testament to the hard work, dedication, and passion that she has put into her music, and it’s a victory for all Nigerian artists and fans of Afrobeats.
Although Burna Boy missed out on the two nominations he was up for this year, his Grammy win for Best Global Music Album for Twice as Tall in 2021 is still fresh in the minds of many music lovers.
Burna Boy has been at the forefront of pushing the Afrobeats genre into the mainstream and has inspired many other Nigerian artists to strive for excellence and recognition.
The Grammys ceremony was filled with excitement and joy, as the winners were announced and celebrated by music lovers all over the world.
Its a great time to be alive and enjoy the best in African music, and Tems’ win serves as a source of inspiration and hope for many aspiring musicians. Nigerians took to social media to express their excitement and joy over Tems’ win, and many used the hashtag #ItsTimeForAfrobeats to show their support.
Tems’ win is a reminder that with hard work and determination, anything is possible. It’s a victory not only for Tems but for all Nigerian artists and the Afrobeats genre, and it’s a sign of even greater things to come.
The music industry is constantly evolving, and Tems’ win is just the beginning of a new era of recognition and appreciation for Afrobeats and Nigerian artists.
