I feel honoured to have gone to prison – Tems

Musician, producer and songwriter, Tems, has reminisced on her ordeal in a Ugandan prison in 2020, describing it as a ‘blessing in disguise’.

It may be recalled that Tems and Omah Lay were arrested and charged to court by the Ugandan authorities for allegedly flouting the COVID-19 regulations.

The duo had performed separately at a concert which held in Speke Resort, Kampala, on the 12th of December, 2020. After their arrest made headlines, Tem and Omah Lay were subsequently detained in prison, but released days later after the Nigerian government’s intervention.

Talking to ES Magazine about her experience, the ‘Damage’ crooner said she felt honoured to have experienced prison as it humbled her.

According to the 28-year-old singer, she wouldn’t have known what prisoners were going through if she hadn’t gone through the same herself.

Tems said; “Prison was once in a lifetime experience that I actually feel honoured to have had because otherwise, I would never have thought about these people, and to be in their presence was very humbling”.
