The All Progressives Congress (APC) has congratulated Tems, the Afrobeats singer, over her first-ever Grammy award win.
The songstress won the ‘Best Melodic Rap Performance’ category on Sunday night for her role in ‘Wait for U’, the 2022 hit song by Future featuring Drake.
The political party took to Twitter on Monday to hail the singer for being the “first female Nigerian artiste” to achieve the feat.
“Congratulations, Tems @temsbaby (Temilade Openiyi) on Grammy award – a 1st for a female Nigerian artiste,” the tweet reads.
“Tems, won the award in the Best Melodic Rap Performance category for her contribution to the hit song “Wait for U” – featuring Future and Drake. Proudly Nigerian.”
