Her manager, Muyiwa Awoniyi announced this in a post on his Instagram stories on Friday, June 2, 2023.
She got it for her work with Drake on Future’s song “Wait for You,” which took home the prize for Best Rap Melodic Performance.
Muyiwa posted a picture of someone displaying the award.
Although the song was up for the Best Rap Song award, this is the first Grammy she has ever won.
Tems is the second female Nigerian performer to win a Grammy, following Sade Adu. In 1986, Sade received a Grammy for Best New Artist.
A while back, Tems spoke out after she was heavily criticized for her outfit to the 2023 Oscars.
The singer trended on social media on Monday after rocking a flamboyant white dress with a long train and huge shoulder piece that wrapped around her head.
It is evident from videos shared online that those seated behind her struggled to see the stage because her shoulder piece obstructed their view.
This sparked a huge controversy online as some netizens dragged her to filth for her choice of outfit to the star-studded event.
Many tagged her “rude” and “selfish” for blocking the view of others in a bid to make a fashion statement.
Following the backlash she received on the internet, Tems took to her Instagram page to release official photos of her outfit to the event with a dramatic caption.
“Uh Ohh!” she wrote, hinting that she is aware of the drama caused by her outfit.
