The Grammy recognition came for Tems’ exceptional work alongside Drake on Future’s hit song “Wait for You,” which triumphed in the category of Best Rap Melodic Performance. To commemorate this achievement, Muyiwa posted a captivating picture of someone proudly displaying the prestigious award.


While the song was also nominated for the esteemed Best Rap Song award, this Grammy win marks a significant milestone as it is Tems’ first-ever Grammy victory. This remarkable accomplishment is a testament to her incredible talent and the impact she has made on the global music scene.

Tems’ Grammy win not only highlights her individual success but also contributes to the broader representation of Nigerian and African artists on the international stage. In fact, she joins the esteemed ranks of Sade Adu, who became the first female Nigerian performer to win a Grammy in 1986. Sade received the prestigious award for Best New Artist, and now Tems follows in her footsteps, blazing a trail for future generations of Nigerian artists to aspire to Grammy greatness.
