SINGER TEMS OPEN UP ON HER POVERTY STRUGGLES.


Nigerian singer Temilade Openiyi, popularly known as Tems, has opened up on her past struggles and dealing with abject poverty. Speaking in an interview with British GQ, the 27-year-old said she used to ste@l food just to survive.

According to her, “There were times when I was not just broke; I was broke and hopeless. I used to ste@l food. I used to go to my aunty’s house just so she could give me food to take home. I just felt like, What is the point of me existing right now?
.

You have to remember those times. Because that person does not exist anymore. I didn’t have any self-esteem. I didn’t think I was pretty. I didn’t even think of my voice as anything.
.

I just thought, There are so many people that can sing, I’m not a model, I don’t dance, but whatever chance I have, I’ll take it. Even if I end up singing under a bridge somewhere, I’ll be the best under-the-bridge singer ever.”
