WITHIN NIGERIA reported that Temilade Openiyi better known as Tems had broke records for winning her first Grammy award.
The Nigerian singer, won the prestigious award at the 65th Grammy award held Sunday night, February 5th, 2023 in Los Angeles.
Her feature on American rapper, Future’s song, ‘Wait for U’, which also featured Drake earned her the award.
With her newest feat, Tems has beat Tiwa Savage, Yemi Alade and other Nigerian female singers to win the prestigious award.
Although Nigerian-born British singer, Sade Adu, has won 4 Grammy awards, but because, she doesn’t identify herself as Nigerian even when quizzed about her nationality, Tems takes the title of the first Nigerian female artiste to win the award.
