Popular Nigerian singer and songwriter Temilade Openiyi, professionally known as Tems has finally received her Grammy award plaque.
Recall GbExtra Blog reported that Tems clinched the prestigious award for Best Melodica Rap Performance at the 65th Grammys held on February 6, 2023.
Tems’ Grammy-winning contribution came from her collaboration with renowned artists Future and Drake on the nostalgic bop dubbed, ‘Wait For U.‘
Muyiwa Awoniyi who is the manager of singer Tems took to the insta-stories section of his official Instagram page on Friday, June 2nd, 2023 to share the exciting news of the plaque’s arrival.
In a gesture of pride, he flaunted the Grammy award plaque without adding a caption, letting the accomplishment speak for itself.
This monumental achievement has placed Tems in the history books as the first female Nigerian artiste to win a Grammy.
It also marks another significant milestone as she became the first female Nigerian singer to receive a Grammy nomination the previous year.
Tems’ nomination in the Best Global Performance category for her hit song ‘Essence,’ a collaboration with fellow Nigerian artist Wizkid, had garnered international acclaim, although she narrowly missed out on the award, losing to Pakistan’s Arooj Aftab, it showcased her undeniable talent and propelled her to even greater heights.
Undoubtedly, this recognition will open doors to new opportunities and collaborations for the gifted singer.
As expected, Tems receiving her Grammy Award plaque sparked several reactions as many throw shade at singer Davido fans stating that they can’t relate to the achievement as their favorite, Davido has never been nominated talkless of winning Grammy award.
