Singer Tems admits poor performance on Wizkid’s latest track ‘Essence’


Talented Nigerian dancehall singer Temilade Openiyi better known in music circles as Tems has admitted that she put up a poor performance on the song titled ‘Essence’ which is off Wizkid’s ‘Made in Lagos’ album.

The ‘Damages’ crooner who is gradually carving out a niche for herself on the local nay International music scene made the admission during an interview on Friday with The Dotty Show on Apple Music 1.

She said; “Even (on) the day I recorded (my verse on the song), I felt I could do better. I asked them to send me the beat again so I could redo my verse but they (Wizkid’s team) said it was great.

“I told them I still wanted to ‘top it’ but they did not let me. However, I was happy with it. I always like to challenge myself and I used to be such a perfectionist. Wizkid also said he liked it,” Tems conlcuded.

While also reacting to a video of American reality TV star Kylie Jenner  singing along to ‘Essence’, Tems said; “That was good. When I was in Los Angeles, I was hearing the song in the most random places. I did not even know that people there knew the song. It was quite an experience.”
