I don’t want anyone to be seduced by me – Singer, Tems

Nigerian Alternative R&B and Afrobeats singer Temilade Openiyi, professionally known as Tems is as hot and curvaceous as they come.

Without lifting a muscle or blinking an eye, she could light up a room with her voluptuous figure and quantum of sexiness oozing from it. But the Grammy award winner sent out a shocker when she declared in a recent interview, shared on one of her backup pages that she doesn’t like anyone to be seduced by her.

The husky-voiced singer admits she has a profound effect on the opposite sex, and it doesn’t take a long guess to know why. Her recent stage performance video where she was seen rolling her waist and backside followed by a rapturous reaction from the crowd told the story.

Hear her, “As crazy as it sounds, I used to not always like my body. I just didn’t understand a lot of things. I was going to a lot of studios alone, meeting people I have never met. Meeting people I never knew and who didn’t know me. I wanted to help a lot of people, I wanted to produce, produce for people I could help.

“Because of my objective, I just wanted to make music. I don’t really care about politics, I just want to learn, I want to be here to learn.

“And if my being attractive is disturbing me from achieving my goal, I’m going to .. help you. So, when I go to the studio I wear baggy clothes. I’m in my alpha mode because I want you not to be seduced by me. I’m not going to be like.. oh it’s your choice. Fine, it’s your choice if you want to be seduced or not, but when I’m at work I don’t want to be the one dishing it out. The way I pull up they can tell she’s just here to work and we work.”

If Tems has been able to keep her provocative figure well veiled and under wraps while at work in the studio, the same cannot be said of her on stage. On stage she doesn’t take prisoners, much like Tiwa Savage and Ayra Starr.

During the interview session, Tems also said she knows that Nigerians don’t really understand her music, saying, “I don’t think Nigerians understand my kind of music but I feel appreciated as a person by Nigerians.”
