OSCARS 2023: Tems Reacts To Backlash Following Her Outfit To The Award Show
Nigerian singer and songwriter, Temilade Openiyi, known professionally as Tems, has responded following criticism on her dress to the Oscars.
She received an Oscar nomination in the best original song category for her contribution on the song “Lift Me Up” from “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” at the award show.
Tems, who was part of the nominees, arrived chicly in an opulent bridal-inspired gown that stood out.
She received a lot of criticism and backlash after a photo of her at the award show with her dress obstructing the view of those behind her, went viral.
The singer took to her social media account hours after the award ceremony to post pictures of herself in that same dress with a cheeky caption.
