Popular Nigeria singer, Temilade Openiyi, fondly known by her stage name, Tems, has said that she felt she could do better when recording the song, ‘Essence’ off Wizkid’s ‘Made in Lagos’ album.
Essence is one of the most successful songs on the album, and Tems did wonderfully well with her vocals, but she might not have been satisfied with her output.
In an interview with The Dotty Show on Apple Music 1, Tems said;
“Even (on) the day I recorded (my verse on the song), I felt I could do better. I asked them to send me the beat again so I could redo my verse but they (Wizkid’s team) said it was great. I told them I still wanted to ‘top it’ but they did not let me. However, I was happy with it. I always like to challenge myself and I used to be such a perfectionist. Wizkid also said he liked it.”
