Tems, a musician from Nigeria, has spoken about her prior financial difficulties.

The music diva explained that she didn’t become famous overnight since she had to deal with financial issues at some time in her life in an interview with GQ magazine.

“I couldn’t take care of anybody. There were times when I was not just broke – I was broke and hopeless. I used to steal food. I used to go to my aunty’s house just so she could give me food to take home,” she said.

“I just felt like, What is the point of me existing right now? You have to remember those times. Because that person does not exist anymore.”

Tems said that she needed to improve her self-esteem before stepping into the spotlight.

“The decision I made was to not wallow in sadness. This person that can never be anything. I didn’t have any self-esteem. I didn’t think I was pretty. I didn’t even think of my voice as anything,” she said.

“I just thought, There are so many people that can sing, I’m not a model, I don’t dance, but whatever chance I have, I’ll take it. Even if I end up singing under a bridge somewhere, I’ll be the best under-the-bridge singer ever.”

Temilade Openiyi is a Nigerian singer, songwriter, and record producer better known by his stage name Tems.
