Tems, the Nigerian singer has just received an Oscar nomination for her contribution to the music industry. The afrobeats singer has been nominated for Best Original Song at the 2023 Oscars Awards. One of the most highly-prized award ceremonies in show business will be held on March 12, 2023. The 95th Academy Awards will be held in Los Angeles, California.

Tems singer, songwriter, and record producer is now an Oscar nominee, the most prestigious award in the film industry. This is quite remarkable considering this nomination has now made her the first female Nigerian artist to achieve this feat.

Tems has also now become the first Nigerian and Afrobeats artist to have an Oscar nomination through writing credits from Wakanda Forever soundtrackLift Me Up“.

Lift Me Up was performed by Rihana who was quick to give Tems some props upon the song’s release.

Clearly, it is Tems who has written the song “Lift Me Up” but Rihana’s execution on wax has also been praised by many.

This is a huge accomplishment for Tems, as well as the entire Nigerian music industry.

Singer Tems Oscar Nomination

Tems, whose real name is Temilade Openiyi, has been making waves in the music space for a few years now. With her unique fusion of alternative R&B, neo-soul, and afrobeats, she has created a sound that is uniquely fresh and at the same time familiar.

Her music deals with themes of love ad relationships, as well as social issues, and has gained a large following in Nigeria and abroad.

The Oscar nomination is a recognition of Tems’ talent and hard work. She has been consistently releasing music over the years, and her most recent EP, “For Broken Years,” has been critically acclaimed.

The project includes hit singles like “Free Mind,” and “Higher” which were hits in Africa and the US. The EP has been lauded for its ability to convey emotion and tell a story, with Tems’ voice being described as soulful and powerful.

This Oscar nomination is also an acknowledgment of the growing influence of African music on the global stage. Tems is one of the many African artists who are breaking down barriers and making their mark on the international music scene.

Her nomination is also a reminder that the world is paying attention to the pool of talents and creativity emerging from Africa.

In the wake of this nomination, Tems has expressed her excitement and gratitude. She has said that she is honored and grateful to be recognized for her work and that she hopes her nomination will inspire other African artists to pursue their dreams. She also said that this is a huge step for African music and she is proud to be part of it.
