Tems wins Best International Act at the 2022 BET Awards

Temilade Openiyi, better known by her stage name Tems, is a Nigerian singer who won Best International Act at the 2022 BET Awards.

At the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, the 2022 award presentation took place. The BET Awards honor Black accomplishments in sport, music, and culture.

Fireboy, Dave from the UK, Dinos from France, Fally Ipupa from the Congo, Little Simz from the UK, Ludmilla from Brazil, Major League Djz from South Africa, and Tayc from France were defeated by the brilliant singer.

Tems encouraged women and girls to stay on their chosen path after receiving the prize, saying that the effort will soon pay off.

She said: “Thank you so much for this, thank you so much. It’s an honour… I mean, this is my first award show that I’m winning something and I just want to use this as an opportunity to speak to every single young, old, whatever, every single woman watching this, every single girl watching this at home. Where I’m from, things like this don’t happen.”

Tems had earlier at the event won Best Collaboration with Wizkid’s ‘Essence’ featuring Justin Bieber.

Essence was nominated against ‘Every Change I Get’ by DJ Khaled ft Lil baby and Lil Durk; ‘Family Ties’ by Baby Seem ft Kenderick Lamar; ‘Whole Lotta’ by Bia ft Nicki Minaj; ‘Way 2 Sexy’, Drake ft Future and Young Thug, and ‘Kiss me More’ by Doja Cat ft SZA.
