Nigerian-born artist TEMS has been making headlines with her feature on the proclaimed song of the summer ‘Essence’ alongside Wizkid. In the past 3 months TEMS has risen to stardom quickly.  She recently signed to RCA Records and released her second EP ‘If Orange Was A Place’. TEMS is currently touring in major cities across the US and kicked off her tour in the Big Apple!


Last night TEMS gave a stellar performance at the Legendary SOBs in NYC and DMV based artist Manny Wellz opened up for her.



There were many special guests in attendance like Kerby, the founder of Pyer Moss, Wale from Show Dem Camp, Tunde from ‘No Wahala Pod’ and Brent Faiyaz, who’s featured on her latest EP. It was also Brent’s Birthday and they definitely celebrated!
