I don’t care about the money; I just want to get my music out there – Tems

Temilade Openiyi, a Grammy-winning Nigerian singer and songwriter, has talked about how she deals with success and how committed she is to her music career.

In a new meeting with American rapper Kendrick Lamar distributed in Interview Magazine, Tems admitted that she was able to confront huge difficulties while changing from the generally acclaimed Afrobeat classification to seeking after R&B.

She shared that she is as yet centred on getting her speciality out there and that she couldn’t care less about the cash.

“All I want to do is make music. If I can’t do that, I don’t want anything. I want to make music that makes me cry. I’d rather do that and end up broke than make a deal. I couldn’t have cared less about the cash. It isn’t so much that cash is awful. Cash is generally excellent. But I’m still chasing a frequency right now,” she admitted.

Thinking about the exhortation she got from others at the hour of her choice, Tems accepted that Afrobeats didn’t line up with her ideal profound force, regardless of many encouraging her to seek after Afrobeats.

“I trusted in myself such a lot that I couldn’t have cared less assuming I turned out to be nothing or anybody. I simply needed to receive a message. I needed to get my recurrence out. Furthermore, I was like, ‘Regardless of whether ten individuals hear this, it’s fine.’ That intense sensation of “I’m about to jump off a cliff” is one that I adore.

That’s how I want my music to always feel, and Afrobeats wasn’t necessarily stimulating me in that way. I was told, “The only way you can do this is with Afrobeats,” by everyone I asked for advice from. It isn’t so much that your music is awful; It simply doesn’t work in Nigeria. Nigerians could do without this.” Furthermore, that is not an untruth, and it’s anything but something terrible. But I knew that was fine in my heart. It doesn’t matter if nobody likes it; I simply need to make this music.” She declared.
