Temilade Openiyi, also known as Tems, a rising singer/songwriter, has stated that she wants to put a light on women, artists, and creatives who are finding their way and voices to greatness.
“I think, for a long time, not just in music, but also in life, women haven’t really had a community, a real type of understanding,” the rising diva said in her debut appearance on her newly launched radio show in partnership with Apple Music, titled “Leading vibe with Tems,” a line culled from her 2018 single “Mr Rebel.” I want to build a global community of women, and I’m not going to accomplish it by myself.
“There’s nothing one accomplishes alone. This has been my earnest desire, but I am not going to do it alone. For now I am only giving out the holistic idea ‘cause I can’t get into full details of how I am going to achieve it, that would be limiting and I am never going to limit God.
” It is going to happen in many ways. I want to live my life to the maximum so that people can get something from it even after I die.”
She also referred to the lessons she learned from the public spotlight on her profession last year as “living actively.”
She said, “As humans, we only have now, this moment to live. We die a little bit more every single day and there isn’t as much time to do nothing, doing nothing is making a decision. We have the ability to choose what we want and the way we live that’s why we have a brain.
” It’s either replenishing or draining. It is either left or right. There’s no in between, no middle ground. And choosing to do nothing is simply making a decision to die.”
Her point of view appeals to me.
