Nigerian Afrobeats star Tems has announced that she is coming to Nairobi soon.
Fresh off a successful tour of London which saw her thrill fans at the iconic concert venue Koko, Tems took to social media on Sunday night to hint that Nairobi was on her itinerary in the coming months.
“Love you London, Thank you,” tweeted the ‘Crazy Tings’ hitmaker alongside a video montage of the thrilling concert she had just treated fans to.
She followed the post with “Nairobi Kenya, I’ll be coming very soon”.
Tems, given name Temilade Openiyi, shot to global fame in 2020 at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic after being featured on fellow Nigerian star WizKid’s hit ‘Essence’.
The song would go ahead to earn her a Grammy nomination and become a club staple after people resumed social activities.
With ‘Essence’, Tems earned her first Billboard Top 10 chart hit and Wizkid became the first African musician to have a song on the Billboard Top 10 chart as a lead artist.
She was awarded the Best International Act at the 2021 BET Awards, becoming the first African female musician to win a BET.
Most recently, Tems was featured on the trailer of the upcoming ‘Black Panther 2’. The trailer, released last week, was soundtracked by Tems’ rendition of Bob Marley’s “No Woman, No Cry” and Kendrick Lamar’s “Alright”.
Just last week, she got the Barack Obama stamp of approval after the former US president included her song ‘Vibe Out’ in his summer playlist.
