Tems, a Grammy-winning Singer from Nigeria, has reflected on her past before becoming well-known. It is hard to believe that the delightful songwriter and singer formerly struggled to support her family financially, but she has recently come clean about it.
Tems spoke candidly in a GQ interview, admitting that she didn’t achieve fame overnight. She claimed that the year before she put out her popular song “Mr Rebel,” she was single and having financial difficulties.
In her words ;
“I couldn’t take care of anybody.
“There were times when I was not just broke – I was broke and hopeless. I used to steal 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.”
“The decision I made was to not wallow in sadness. This person that can never be anything.
“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.”
