“I’d love to play a single mum” – Singer Tems contemplates delving into acting
Grammy award-winning Nigerian singer and songwriter, Temilade Openiyi, professionally known as Tems, has expressed her interest in joining the movie industry sometime in the future.
In a recent interview with BBC Capital Xtra London, the Grammy-winning singer expressed her desire to portray solo parts in films.
Tems, who grew up in Lagos as the child of a single mother, asserted that the role should not revolve around her suffering with her child or children.
“I’m ready to act in movies. Not ready right now but I’m already good at acting. The first character I would love to play is a single mum.
It doesn’t need to be struggling. It could be like a fun single mum or a single mum that has mysteries. A gangster.”
In other news, Tems revealed that she began making music because of her introverted nature and lack of friends.
She explained that her music is meant for people who can relate to her experiences and emotions.
Furthermore, the 28-year-old Grammy winner declared that no one can compete with her, and her only rival in music is herself.
Tems made this statement during an interview on Hot 97 FM in New York. She also emphasized that she would continue releasing songs even if nobody listens to them.
