Tems – The Poetry Laced Queen (Artist Review)



With Alté singer and songwriter, Tems, what you see is what you get. There are no two ways about that.

With the singer, there is always something for everyone. Its either her voice is the magic, or her poetry laced lyrics. It could very well be her rebel looks as titled in her 2019 hit song. The drill here is that Tems is an artiste for everybody.

Since her breakout, Tems has conveniently held her own. She has shown promise of strength and growth. She has delivered a distinctive voice, surreal music and of course a fine blend of what deep lyrics read like.

More interestingly, she has been able to subtly carve a niche for herself in an industry where there are only a handful of women. If not for anything, she deserves an applause.

With beautiful songs like ‘Try Me’, ‘Mr Rebel’ and ‘Looku Looku’in the bag, Tems has been able to effectively introduce her fans to the magic that she is.

With other featureso Khalid’s ‘Disclosure; DRB Lasgidi’s ‘Pionner’ album, Show Dem Camp’s 2019 project, Tems has proven that she has a gift. While some of the features were not particularly thrilling, her EP announcement seemed like a sort of plea for forgiveness.


Tems has not won any awards yet. However, she has been nominated for quite a number of them. Some of the nominations she has gotten include:

In 2019, she was nominated for Best Vocal Performance (Female) at the Headies award.

Best Alternative Song for her single “Mr Rebel”, during the Headies award.

She was nominated for next rated at the headies awards, 2020.
