Tems Features On Black Panther Sequel: ‘Wakanda Forever’ Soundtrack

Temilade Openiyi, popularly known as Tems has achieved another milestone in her music career as she recently stars on Black Panther sequel soundtrack. This was revealed on the 23rd of July after the trailer of the Marvel Studio Production blockbuster was debuted. The movie is scheduled for a November 11 release.

The Nigerian singer and songwriter performs a solemn rendition of Bob Marley’s ‘No, Woman No Cry’ at the beginning of the teaser. The song gradually transitions into Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Alright’.

Tems became one of the hottest Nigerian and African artists internationally following her feature in Wizkid’s ‘Essence’.
