According to him, her command of the stage during these performances contributed greatly to Wizkid’s resurgence in the music industry.

He expressed the belief that Tems’ collaborations, particularly with Wizkid on his “Made in Lagos” (MIL) album, had helped propel her to the spotlight.

However, Regha also noted that outside of these collaborations, Tems had yet to achieve a major hit of her own.

He Wrote;

“Tems only gets attention as a performer when she sings Essence. She’s a promising upcomer, & is also the main reason why Wizkid was able to revive his music career with the MIL album; But asides collabs, she literally has no hit song of her own. Hope she steps it up. No offense.”
