Tems Makes History: Wins Her First Grammy Award

Tems

Nigerian music sensation Tems makes history after winning her first-ever Grammy award. She is the second Nigerian female to achieve this feat.

Temilade Openiyi took home her first Grammy award for her contribution to Future‘s ‘Wait For U,’ which also features Drake at the 65th Annual ceremony which happened last night at the crypto.com Arena. The song was nominated alongside Latto (“Big Energy (Live)”, Jack Harlow (“First Class”), Kendrick Lamar (“Die Hard”), and DJ Khaled (“Beautiful”) in the Best Melodic Rap Performance category.

Tems was also nominated in the ‘Album Of The Year‘, for her contribution to Beyoncé’s Renaissance, and ‘Best Rap Song‘ categories. She recently got nominated for an Oscar for co-writing Rihanna’s comeback single ‘Lift Me Up’, a song in the ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” movie soundtrack album.

On “Wait For U”, Future sampled Tems’ vocals from her song “Higher” from her 2020 debut album ‘For Broken Ears‘. He loved the value her vocals gave the song so much, he credited her as a featured artiste instead of just a songwriter.

The first Nigerian female Grammy award winner is Sade. She won the Grammy for ‘Best New Artist’ in 1986.
