Nigerian singer Temilade Olaniyi, widely known as Tems, has debunked the popular assumption that she’s from a wealthy home.
Tems, who spoke in a new chat with Saturday Beat, said it was a misconception that she was from a rich background.
She corrected the misapprehension, saying that she appreciated her mother for doing everything she could to make sure they had quality education.
The budding singer stated that despite not being able to afford the school they attended because it was expensive, her mother made sure they got a quality education. Tems added that everyone in the school was aware they were not rich.
“I am just sending big love to my mum because of who she is. She stopped at nothing (to take care of us).”
“We could not afford to go to the school we went to (because it was expensive). Everybody in that school knew we were not rich. My mum was the doctor of the school clinic. We thank God that we don’t look like what we went through,” she said.
