Nigerian Alte singer, Temilade Openiyi, popularly known as Tems, has reacted to the controversial video of Ayodeji Balogun, known professionally as Wizkid, trying to raise her at their recent concert in O2 arena. The sonorous singer did this by restating her love for Wizkid, stating that it’s never going to change.
The 26 year old said this in a video which surfaced on Friday, where she was performing the duo’s hit single, ‘Essence.’. The perfomance held on Wednesday and was sold out at the O2 Arena.
The video surfaced a day after a viral video of the self acclaimed star boy trying to lift Tems. This happened while they both performed during his album tour in London. In the video, Wizkid was inviting Tems on stage to perform Essence. Wizkid is seen placing his arms under Tems’ buttocks in an attempt to lift her. While Tems refused this by pulling his hands away.
Since it surfaced, the video has resulted in a debate on Twitter. Some tweeps accused Wizkid of sexual harassment, while others tried to defend him.
However, in the video which surfaced on Friday, Tems said, “All I’m going to say is Wiz is my brother, and someone I look up to.”. She further stated that she is grateful “for all he’s done and his existence.”
“I want you guys to remember that he’s human, I’m human, and I love him, and that’s not gonna change.”
