Tems, a well-known singer, made history by becoming the first female artist from Nigeria to win the Best International Act category at the BET Awards in 2022.
The 26-year-old Afrobeats singer received the honor on Sunday, June 26, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, during the 2022 BET Awards, which Taraji P. Henson, an Academy Award nominee, served as host.
In addition to Dave (UK), Dinos (France), Fally Ipupa (DRC), Fireboy Dml (Nigeria), Little Simz (UK), Ludmilla (Brazil), Major League Djz (South Africa), and Tayc, Tems was nominated for Best International Act (France).
She became the first Nigerian woman to win the prize, which has previously gone to Wizkid, Davido, Burna Boy, Ice Prince, D’banj, and 2Baba, among six other Nigerians.
Best wishes, Tems!
