Temilade Openiyi, the fast-rising Nigerian singer better known as Tems, has finally met with Rihanna, the award-winning Barbadian songstress.


The duo connected in Los Angeles on Wednesday night at an event promoting Rihanna’s latest Savage X Fenty lingerie collection.

A video posted on Tem’s Instagram story showed her hugging Rihanna, who screamed “Oh my God” on meeting her.

Tems earlier released ‘If Orange Was A Place’, her second extended play (EP), featuring Brent Faiyaz, the US singer.


She was also featured in ‘Certified Lover Boy’, the latest studio album by Drake, the American rapper-cum-producer.

The 26-year-old gained international acclaim for her effort on ‘Essence’, a chart-topping hit song by Wizkid.

In August, the track hit 16th place on Billboard Hot 100, having become the first Nigerian song to crack the chart.


Speaking of her feature in Drake’s Certified Lover Boy’, album, Tems had said: “It’s unbelievable, literally.


“When I said I wanted to work with Drake, I just said it. I wasn’t thinking about it. I used to listen to Drake all the time when I was in high school and growing up and it was just the first thing that came to my mind.

“And for me to actually meet him, work with him, it’s just crazy. I can’t quantify how grateful I am, because it’s not anything I did. I’m just making music. And it just seems like I’m attracting all these people. I’m just so grateful.”
