Grammy-winning artiste, Temilade Openiyi aka Tems has opened up on the challenges attached to being famous.

Tems, having achieved so much, explained the issues that come with fame, reiterating she isn’t going to break her rules to please anyone.

She stated this while discussing with American rap artist, Kendrick Lamar.

Tems noted that being successful usually comes with its pressures and challenges, but she tries to navigate through them by simply being herself.

She said: “When you become more known or seen, it’s very easy to get caught up in, “What do people expect of me now?” But for me, it’s like, “What do I expect of myself now?” Because you’re the one that has to live with yourself, the one that has to sleep with the decisions that you make.

“Trusting yourself is so key, and I’m not going to stop trusting my guts just because people can see me now. It’s like being in a zoo. The animals don’t change their behaviour just because you’re looking at them. They’re always going to be who they are. So why should I change?”
