Temilade ‘Tems‘ Openiyi, the Afrobeats singer, has expressed excitement over her first-ever Grammy award win.
The ‘Damages’ crooner, in an interview with Rolling Stone, also disclosed that working with Future and Drake, the American singers, was a “dream come true”.
Tems 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.
In the interview, the songstress said winning the Grammy award is ‘”just the beginning” for her.
“It’s incredible. I get to work with people that five years ago, were on my playlist. You know, I was jamming with them, and now I’m working with them. It’s such a pleasure, and I feel like this is just the beginning,” she said.
Congratulations poured in for the singer after she became the first Nigerian female artiste to have won the award.
The well-wishers include Tiwa Savage, Waje, Omawumi, the singers, and Adesua Etomi-Wellington, the actress.
Atiku Abubakar, the wife of the former vice-president of Nigeria, also congratulated the 27-year-old songwriter.
President Buhari, in his congratulatory message, praised the singer for showcasing her talent to the world and placing Nigeria in the spotlight of excellence.
Tems gained international prominence after featuring in ‘Essence’, a collaborative song with Wizkid.
