When asked why she decided to call her own brand of Afrobeats music the Spirit genre, Tems says;
I like to crack jokes a lot so in a way, I was joking [when I called it Spirit] but also I wasn’t. What I mean is that’s where my songs come from. They come from my spirit. [Music is] a very spiritual experience for me and that’s why I call it Spirit. It makes you feel and for me, it comes from a very pure place.
In the same Teen Vogue interview, Tems was also asked for the story behind her new EP. She divulges;
There’s always a story behind my songs. They’re mostly my thoughts. The process is really just me experiencing things and then me expressing how I feel about these experiences. And that’s mostly what I’ve done for this EP.
What do you think about this?
We want to hear from you all.
