Wowow, why did it take me so long to find out about Nigerian R&B artist Tems? Ever since I discovered Looku Looku, I’ve played it at least 5 times a day, every single day. It’s one of those songs that never really leaves your brain after its first appearance. I’ve had many mornings when I woke up, opened my eyes and thought: “Damn I need to hear this song like NOW!” There’s something about the first few seconds that’s just, yes. And then there’s still over 3 minutes of magic to come.
The power of Tems is that she owns a voice that’s so unmistakenly hers. A sound that’s unique to her. Whether you put on Mr Rebel, Try Me or These Days, you’ll know within seconds you’re hearing a Tems original. It makes her an artist you only need to hear once to remember forever.
