Young singer, Tems has recounted some life bitter experiences speaking about how she used to STEAL FOOD for her family so that they could eat.
The singer made the revelation in an interview with GQ.
She revealed she didn’t become successful overnight and has a matter of fact, the year before she released her hit song “Mr Rebel”, she was living alone and struggling financially.
She said; “I couldn’t take care of anybody.
“There were times when I was not just broke – I was broke and hopeless. I used to steal food. I used to go to my aunty’s house just so she could give me food to take home.
“I just felt like, What is the point of me existing right now? You have to remember those times. Because that person does not exist anymore.”
She also revealed she had to change her state of mind before getting into limelight. She added;
“The decision I made was to not wallow in sadness. This person that can never be anything.
“I didn’t have any self-esteem. I didn’t think I was pretty. I didn’t even think of my voice as anything. I just thought, There are so many people that can sing, I’m not a model, I don’t dance, but whatever chance I have, I’ll take it. Even if I end up singing under a bridge somewhere, I’ll be the best under-the-bridge singer ever.”
