Tems, the award-winning Nigerian singer, has gone viral on social media over the outfit she wore to the 2023 Oscar Awards.
The award ceremony was held on Sunday night at the Dolby Theatre, Ovation Hollywood in Los Angeles, US.
The Afrobeats star graced the event in a lush white gown from Lever Couture with a particularly obstructive headpiece.
The 27-year-old songstress, who co-wrote Rihanna‘s ‘Black Panther Wakanda Forever‘ track ‘Lift Me Up‘, which was nominated for the ‘Best Original Song’ category, however, stole the show after her outfit literally took up space.
‘Lift Me Up’ is a rather soulful ‘Black Panther’ theme song that evokes deep feelings of transcendence.

Rihanna co-wrote the song with Tems, producer Ludwig Göransson, and director Ryan Coogler.
The artistes wrote the single as a tribute to Chadwick Boseman, the ‘Black Panther’ actor who died in 2020.
Although Rihanna lost her category, the Nigerian started to attract attention on social media over her puffy white gown that she wrapped around the back of her head.
