Following her triumph for Best International Act as well as Essence’s victory in the Best Collaboration category, talented Nigerian chanteuse Tems took the stage again at the BET Awards 2022.
Following the ceremony, there was also an incident in which Tems appeared “bashful” as Essence was proclaimed the winner in the “Best Collaboration” Category. This led to conflicting comments from fans on social media. Tems has been dubbed “The Queen of Afrobeats” by others, a moniker that has since caused controversy among admirers.
However, as evidenced by the following responses, words fall short.

Gotta love Tems❤️ I don’t think she was shy or surprised she just respects the fact that it’s a wiz record regardless of it being a magical collab…
