Temilade Openiyi, professionally known as Tems, is a Grammy-award winning Nigerian singer who has disclosed that in the music business, she is her only rival.
In her opinion, nobody can compete with her in the music industry.
The sensational singer spoke in a recent interview with Hot 97 FM, New York.
“I’m competitive within myself but I’m not competitive with other artists. Nobody can compete with me.
“I’m original. I have had children. But also, I’m just all about being true to myself. My music is for people that relate to it. So my music is coming from me. And my music is my outlet.
“I started making music because I didn’t have friends. I heard something to say and I didn’t have anyone to say it to. So, I would just sing it. I will write it in a song and record it on my phone. I was doing that for years.
“So, music is my outlet. Whether anybody listens to it or not, I’ve to release it. Whether it does or not, it’s none of my business. But I need to release it. And it’s for the people that can connect with it and are going through the same thing.”
Tems also stated that she had never imagined all the awards she has received musically, noting that she enjoys singing.
