Temilade Openiyi, popularly known as Tems, said that she didn’t realise how far she had come till she left Nigeria.
Tems revealed this via her official Instagram page on Saturday, as she celebrated the one-year anniversary of her debut EP For Broken Ears.
She wrote, GANG. It’s one year of For Broken Ears today?
Really Feels like ages ago, I cannot tell it allllllll what the Most High has done for me.
Turned me to a trail blazer
Though we are all mad, I have decided not to disguise anymore.
I didn’t realise just how far I have come till I left home. Nigeria does that to you. I pray we all see the power we have but we’re all too busy disguising.
No more. I enter the door with my full chest
If you are seeing this. Own your madness.
And let your light shine.
Thank you for the abundance of love.
I appreciate you GANG??

This celebration comes days after she met with Rihanna in Los Angeles.
Tems gained international recognition following her feature on Wizkid’s hit record, “Essence”, a song that stood out in the Made in Lagos album.
As a measure of its success, Canadian pop star, Justin Bieber, jumped on its remix and tagged it as, ‘song of the summer.’
