Singer, Tems, explains the story behind her name

In a recent interview with Elle Magazine, Tems explained that he full name is ‘Temilade’ and why her mother named her that.

Explaining further, she said;

“I asked her (my mother) one day, ‘Why did you call me Temi,’ which means ‘the crown is mine’? The truth is, back in the day in Nigeria, your mom can’t give you your name. Your father can name you, that would be your second name. Your grandfather would give you your first name, or your grandmother, but your mother actually does not name you. My mom didn’t name my brother, but for me, she made it very clear that it was meant to be my name. And she fought to give me that name.”
