Five days after having her share the in the 65th Grammy Awards, Nigerian musician — Temilade Openiyi, professionally known as Tems, has disclosed what attending the ceremony and eventually winning the accolade actually means to her.
Tems who won her first Grammy via her contribution on “Wait For U,” has taken to Twitter a few days to express her appreciation to everyone who has been a part of her success story.
However, in her recent interview with Vogue, the singer said: “I’ve never been in the same place with so many artists in one space before.
The awards ceremony afforded her the rare opportunity to meet and exchange pleasantries with the likes of DJ Khaled, Rick Ross and Mary J. Blige,” whose songs I used to listen to a lot when I was 12 or 13.
“I came from Lagos and, at that time, there was no way I thought I would ever meet her. That was very cool.”
She said the American music show had a significant impact on her throughout her childhood.
“Back in the day, the Grammys were definitely an event. So attending the ceremony was a full-circle moment,” Tems added.
