Netizens Drag Tems For Being ‘Insensitive’ Over Her Headpiece At The 2023 Oscars

Nigerian singer, Temilade Openiyi popularly known as Tems has been slammed on social media after her elaborate outfit blocked the view of fellow attendees at Sunday night’s Academy Awards.

Tems was a nominee at the 95th Academy Awards held at Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California, in the United States.

The Grammy Award winner was Oscar-nominated for Best Original Song for the “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” track “Lift Me Up” and appeared with a puffy white gown that wrapped around the back of her head.
