Tems (Singer) Biography

Temilade Openiyi, who is known professionally as Tems, is a Nigerian singer, songwriter and record producer. She was born to a Nigerian mother and British father in Lagos on 11 June 1995.

According to Tems, music is her happy place, the only thing  that makes her feel at home. So it was inevitable she should take to music.

The decision to leap into the world  of music was taken when she was about 13. At the time she had already realized she was good in music, describing it during an interview as something  that comes naturally to her.

Back in school, her teacher had noticed her singing talent and encouraged her

Tems singing talent has not only been acknowledged by the music community in Nigeria but but American RnB champ Chris Brown as well.

In a post to his Instagram Story in late December 2020, Chris Brown, who had been impressed by her singing, had described her as fire – really “…so so so fire.”

That fire had led to several international invitations including one that took her to Uganda alongside fellow musician Omah Lay.

In Uganda, she had been arrested alongside Omah Lay and taken to the slammer for violating COVID-19 protocols.

Her arrest had led to an outcry on social media, causing her to trend alongside Omah Lay until her release.

For one who is pretty new on the scene, the songstress has got an impressive catalogue. Among the songs she has released to date are “Ultra Happiness,” “Love Me Down,” “Twisted Tilde,” “Come Inn,” “These Days” and “Try Me.”

“Try Me” is probably one of her most popular songs to date. In fact, the song trended at the time it was released, thrusting her into the hearts of many music lovers across Africa. By the way, she also has a debut EP  called “Music For Broken Ears.”


Tems was born in June 1995, which makes her 24 years right now. She will be 25 in June this year. Her birthday is something she is looking forward to. But for now, the music.
