Celebrity singer-songwriter Temilade Openiyi, commonly known as Tems, was the first Nigerian to win the BMI Impact Award in London.

The singer was recognized for her originality, inventive talent, and effect on musical trends.

Finally, BMILondon commended Tems and expressed interest in knowing about her next successes.

Recall how Tems described her early years and how she needed to steal food to survive.

Tems asserted that she and her mother had a trying life since they experienced unpleasant times, such as when her mother was attacked by someone who broke into their home and held her at knifepoint.

Her decision to quit her work and ask her mother for approval to pursue a career in music at one point in their challenging lives significantly changed their lives.
