Among the two Awards she won are:

  1. Best international act “
  2. Best collaboration which she won alongside Wizkid and Justin Bieber.

Shortly after her victory, some fans began making snide remarks as they compared her with her colleagues and tried to crown her “Queen of Afrobeats.”

Tems has now shut those talks down with a humble post she shared where she appreciated Asa, Tiwa, Yemi, Waje, Simi, and every other female artiste who in one way or the other, inspired so many people to do music.

In her words, she wrote

“I’m taking today to appreciate alll the Sisters today. Thank you for existing, thank you for deciding to get up and do something because someone saw that and became inspired by it. @Asa_official @Omawumi @TiwaSavage @yemialadee @OfficialWaje @SympLySimi @OfficialNiniola

@amaarae @Gyakie_ @ayrastarr @faveszn @TeniEntertainer 

When I see anyone of you gracing a stage, I feel like that’s me. We’re all winning and we’re about to move in like a Tsunami. So before it starts, know that Love lives on this side.

As we show the world how it’s done.

And if I missed any messages it is definitely unintentional. I don’t take your kind words and support for granted. Sending you all love today because you DESERVE.

Love always❤️‍🔥”
