Tems’ name is rarely far from Nigerian music talent chatter. The Nigerian singer, songwriter and producer creates emotive music with vivid and relatable lyrics that have made cult fans out of young music listeners around the continent. It’s easy to hear why she was shortlisted to perform her debut single, Mr Rebel at our Aux Live Sessions which broke her out to mainstream audiences in 2019. Since then, her star has continued to rise off the strength of her magical debut EP, For Broken Ears and her consistency with delivering hit singles and remarkable guest features. Her success today is evidence of our Aux Live Session’s power to discover exceptional music talents and break new artists into the mainstream.
Aux is dedicated to providing new artists with a platform that gives them mainstream reach, exposes them to live events, international music tastemakers and local radio audiences. Since we launched in 2019, we’ve introduced several artists like Tems, Oxlade, Fireboy DML and several others who have now grown into dominant figures in the music scene. We pride ourselves in creating intimate live music sessions for new talents to show off their skill and also create a new means of music discovery in Africa.
