One of the best voices of our generation, Grammy Award-winning, Oscar-nominated, Lagos, Nigeria-based singer, songwriter and producer Tems has today unveiled her highly anticipated debut album “Born In The Wild”.

With an outstanding 84 award nominations ranging from Grammys to Oscars & 32 wins (including a Grammy, MTV, ELLE UK Style, BET Award & the Breakthrough Award at Billboard’s 2024 Women in Music), Tems is the first African woman to have five Billboard hits.

Set to embark on her first-ever headlining world tour this summer next week, the 18-track album boasts superstar collaborations from J.Cole and Asake.

When asked about her debut album Tems states, Born In The Wild is a story of transformation, from a cocoon to a butterfly. It speaks on surviving mental wilderness and coming to a place where one can thrive. It’s about finally accepting oneself and embodying the woman I was born to be. It shows the different dimensions of who I am, from a cub to a lioness.”
