If you’re a fan of Nigerian music, you’ve probably heard of Tems, the Grammy-winning artist and songwriter who has captivated audiences with her soulful voice and unique style. Tems, whose full name is Temilade Openiyi, has been making waves on the global music scene since his debut EP For Broken Ears in {2020}, which featured hits like Try Me, Damages and The Key.

Tems has collaborated with some of the biggest names in the industry, such as Wizkid, Drake, Khalid and Justin Bieber. She has also performed at prestigious events like the Grammy Awards, BET Awards, and MTV Video Music Awards. His latest album, If Orange Was A Place, received rave reviews from critics and fans alike, demonstrating his versatility and growth as an artist.

But Tems is not only a talented musician, she is also a visionary leader who uses her platform to inspire and empower others. That’s why she’s featured prominently on TIME magazine’s {2023} TIME 100 Next list, joining a select group of people “who have achieved maximum influence in their fields.” This list curated by TIME Magazine highlights 100 emerging leaders who are making waves in diverse fields such as business, entertainment, sports, politics, health, science and activism across the world.

Tems is one of four Nigerians to make the list this year, alongside Dr. Toyin Ajayi, co-founder and CEO of Cityblock Health, a technology-driven healthcare provider committed to improving health outcomes marginalized communities facing systemic challenges; Abbey Wemimo and Samir Goel, founders and CEOs of Esusu, a fintech startup that helps low-income people get credit and save money; and Mercy Mutemi, a lawyer and activist fighting for women’s rights and reproductive justice in Kenya.

Tems was praised by Mary J. Blige, an American singer-songwriter and actress, who wrote for the magazine: “Tems is in a class of her own because no other artist sounds like her. This voice is so unique and original, so much so that it reminds me of the first time I heard Nina Simone. They both sing with emotion and conviction, making you feel every word they sing. I know she will go far because she is a talented writer, singer and producer – my only hope for her is that she becomes one of the greatest artists of her time. Talent is one thing, but the way you treat people and yourself in this industry brings longevity, and I believe she’ll be around for a while because she’s a beautiful human. being inside and outside.

We couldn’t agree more with Mary J. Blige’s words. Tems is indeed a rare gem who deserves all the recognition and accolades she receives. Not only does she make Nigeria proud, but she also inspires millions across the world with her music and message. We congratulate her on making the TIME 100 Next list and look forward to seeing more of her incredible work in the future.
