Tems, a popular musician from Nigeria, responded after being named best international talent at the BET 2022 Awards.
Tems won the prize after competing against Fireboy, Major League Djz from South Africa, Dave Dinos from France, Fally Ipupa from the Congo, Little Simz from the UK, Ludmilla from Brazil, and Tayo (France).
Tems dedicated the honor, which she received on Sunday night at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, to all women, particularly those in Nigeria who may not have believed they could pursue their goals.
“Thank you very much for this, thank you so much,” she exclaimed. It is an honor since this is the first award show where I have won something, and I simply want to use this chance to address every single woman and girl watching at home, regardless of age or gender.
“Things like this don’t happen where I’m from.”
Wizkid and Tems won the best collaboration for their song “Essence” with Justin Bieber.
