Tems’ Collaboration With Wizkid Revived His Career – Daniel Regha

Controversial Twitter adviser, Daniel Regha, has stated that Tems gets relevance as a performer only when she performs ‘Essence’ which she was featured on by Wizkid.

He also asserted that Tems played a significant role in reviving Wizkid’s dwindling career.

Regha commended Tems’ impressive stage presence and performance whenever she joins Wizkid in performing their hit collaboration, “Essence.”

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.”
