Nigerian singer, Temilade Openiyi, who is professionally known as Tems, has won the Best International Act at the 2022 BET Awards.

She made history on Sunday night as she became the first African woman to win in the category.

Her hit collaboration “Essence” with Wizkid shot her to international prominence in 2021.

Essence was tagged the “summer song of the year 2021”, earning a remix with Canadian singer Justin Bieber.

Tems defeated Dave (UK), Dinos (France), Fally Ipupa (DRC), Fireboy DML (Nigeria), Little Simz (UK), Ludmilla (Brazil), Major League DJz (South Africa) and Tayc (France).

Receiving the award, she said “Thank you so much for this, thank you so much.

“It’s an honour… I mean, this is my first award show that I’m winning something and I just want to use this as an opportunity to speak to every single young, old, whatever, every single woman watching this, every single girl watching this at home.

“Where I’m from, things like this don’t happen.”
