Tems is one of Africa’s most successful performers, with her music receiving widespread acclaim in the United Kingdom and the United States, where she has established herself as a mainstream talent.

The R&B singer has made history by having the longest-running number-one single by a female artist on the Billboard R&B/Hip Hop Airplay Chart.

Tems’ achievement surpasses previous marks held by American megastars such as Beyonce and Rihanna.

Tems has had enormous success in the UK and the US after breaking onto the worldwide stage with her talents to Wizkid’s blockbuster hit album “Essence.”

Her chart-topping song ‘Free Mind’ spent many weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 and was certified platinum by the RIAA.

Tems has worked with Drake, Future, and Beyonce and composed for Rihanna.

She is the first Nigerian female artist to win a BET award and the first to win two BET awards in the same night. She is also the first female Afrobeats artist to win a Grammy, having won Best Melodic Rap Performance at the 2022 Grammys for her contribution to Future’s “Wait for U.”

Tems is also the first Nigerian artist to be nominated for an Oscar for her work to the song “Lift Me Up,” which appears on the soundtrack of the film “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.”
