Tems Graces the Cover of ‘The Cut’ Magazine 2024

Afrobeats sensation Tems, also known as Temilade Openiyi, graces the January 2024 cover of ‘The Cut’ Magazine. Hailing as one of Africa’s prominent female exports, the superstar captivates readers with her presence on the cover, accompanied by an interview by Connor Garel.

Noted as the “top streamed female artist in sub-Saharan Africa,” Tems boasts a remarkable discography, earning her a Grammy, a Golden Globe nomination, and a Billboard record for the infectious Free Mind.

In a feature article, ‘The Cut’ Magazine describes Tems as truly unique, asserting, “NO ONE SOUNDS LIKE TEMS.” The Nigerian singer-songwriter, with just a handful of songs, has mesmerized the biggest names in the music industry, marking only the beginning of her impressive journey.


In 2023, Tems made a comeback with her second single, ‘Not an Angel,’ following a two-year break. During this hiatus, she earned a Grammy Nomination for Best Global Music Performance for Wizkid’s ‘Essence’ featuring Justin Bieber, secured a Grammy for Best Melodic Rap with Future’s ‘Wait for You’ featuring Drake, and was an Oscars nominee for Best Original Song for co-writing Rihanna’s ‘Lift Me Up’ for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.

In a recent interview, Tems revealed her upcoming album is “basically done,” although no release date or cover has been set. During an ‘Ask Me Anything’ session with Elle UK, the Grammy-winning Nigerian singer shared her casual approach, stating that if invited to dinner by former U.S. President Barack Obama, she’d opt for jeans to keep it a laid-back vibe, reasoning, “He’s already been a president. Why do we have to make things so formal?”
