Starboy Wizkid and Tems have both been nominated for the 2022 Grammy awards
2021 has proven to be a great year for Nigerian music stars, Wizkid and Tems as they both snag Grammy nominations ahead of the 2022 show. While this year’s nomination is the first for “Crazy Tings” crooner, Tems, it is the second for the king of Afropop, superstar Wizkid aka Big Wiz.
Tems has had a spectacular rise this year and continues to blaze a trail for young women in Alté. She has established herself as one of the most passionate young artists in the Nigerian music industry over the last two years.
26-year-old Tems dropped her sophomore project “If Orange was a Place” on September 14 this year. Her international recognition grew with the release of a series of notable singles and albums, including her collaboration with Drake on the song “Fountains” off his album “Certified Lover Boy,” and she has since become an artist to watch.
