Tems Listed Among 2023 Time100 Next List



Tems, the Nigerian singer, has been listed among the TIME magazine’s top 100 for 2023.

Time 100 is an annual listicle of the 100 most influential people in the world, assembled by the American news magazine TIME.

The magazine released the latest TIME100 Next list on Wednesday.

Writing for the magazine, Mary J. Blige, the American singer, said she believes Tems has the talent and skills to maintain a long and successful career.

“Tems is in a class all by herself because no other artist sounds like her. That voice is so unique and original, so much so that it reminds me of the first time I heard Nina Simone. They both sing with emotion and conviction, making you feel every word they sing,” she wrote.

“When Tems and I finally had a chance to meet last year at the Grammy Awards, we just exploded on each other, giving each other so much love. I know she will make it far because she’s a talented writer, singer, and producer—my only hope for her is that she becomes one of the biggest artists of her time.

“Talent is one thing, but how you treat people and treat yourself in this industry brings longevity, and I believe she will be around for a while because she’s a beautiful human being inside and out.”

Tems, born Temilade Openiyi, rose to global prominence in 2020 after featuring in ‘Essence’, a collaborative song with Wizkid.
