Temilade Openiyi, better known as Tems, a Nigerian singer, was named Best International Act at the BET Awards 2022 last night.
The award was won by Tems, beating off competition from Fireboy, Dave from the UK, Dinos from France, Fally Ipupa from Congo, Little Simz from the UK, Ludmilla from Brazil, Major League Djz from South Africa, and Tayc from France.
Tems accepted the award and dedicated it to every single woman who may not believe she can pursue her dreams.
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.”
On Sunday night, June 26, the annual award ceremony honoring Black excellence in music, entertainment, and sports was held at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
