Bio

Tems is a neo-soul and alternative R&B singer-songwriter from Nigeria. She burst into mainstream acclaim in 2018 with her single ‘Mr Rebel’. 

Tems studied piano as a kid and would also sing with her brother, who played the guitar. Using her mother’s poem book, she created her first song when she was six. In 2018, she quit her marketing job and released the single ‘Mr Rebel’, which earned her two nominations at the Headies.

In 2019, Tems scored another streaming hit with ‘Try Me’. The following year, she joined fellow Nigerian artist Davido on the Afrobeats remix of Khalid’s ‘Know Your Worth’. 2020 also saw Tems release her debut EP, For Broken Ears.

In 2021, Tems rose to international prominence with her appearance on Wizkid’s ‘Essence’, whose remix features a verse from Canadian pop star Justin Bieber. 

In September 2021, Tems released her sophomore EP If Orange Was A Place EP and secured a record deal with Since ’93/RCA Records.

A YouTube Music Foundry alumna, she has also been singled out by Spotify as an emerging African artist to watch.
