Being a Nigerian is difficult– Tems

Temilade Openiyi, often known as Tems has cried out as she says that one of the difficult things is to be a citizen of Nigeria.
Tems spoke about her experiences navigating the complexity of her hometown, shining light on the terrible reality that many Nigerians face.

She did, however, add that, despite the hurdles, being a Nigerian has a benefit if one exploits their gift and takes it to an audience that will value it.
She called being a woman of Nigerian descent “a miracle.”
In a recent interview with Kiss FM in London, UK, the Oscar-nominated diva stated:

“Being a Nigerian woman is a miracle. Because being a Nigerian, for anybody, is tough. But I think if you can tap into your gifts and own who you are be unapologetic about it, and take that to the world, that is an honor.

“I think Nigerian women are the most blessed. I won’t say the most blessed but everybody is blessed in an equal manner but Nigerian women are very special to me. They are very dear to me and I believe that it is such a huge blessing to be a Nigerian woman and to be living in this time.”
