2023 Oscars: Tems Receives Criticism For Awards Outfit
Netizens are talking about Tems and the “view-blocking” Oscars dress she wore. With an enormous headdress obscuring the people’s view behind her, the award-winning Nigerian musician looked stunning in her Lever Couture SS23 outfit.
Videos online depict attendees seated behind Tems attempting to see the stage by peering over her dress. Twitter users have since reacted to Tems’ attire by labeling her “rude” and “selfish,” among other things.

The “Dress Fail” aside, Tems has been on a remarkable astronomical rise to fame and, in quite a short time, has seen herself grace top Award shows where she has also been nominated, including the Grammys and Oscars.
In an interview, she was honest about her emotions after learning she had been nominated for an Oscar, expressing satisfaction and hope for her future success. She understood that this nomination allowed her to consider her journey, in which she felt great joy.
Tems continued by expressing her admiration for Rihanna, another nominee, whom she described as one of the biggest musical icons in the world. Tems carefully expressed gratitude for the accomplished and powerful celebrity during their second collaboration. Tems confirmed that she would be pleased to collaborate with Rihanna again.
Tems’ career reached a turning point with her nomination at the 2023 Oscars, and it is admirable that she is accessible to the media and supportive of her other nominees. Tems’ achievements in the industry merit praise, and the interview made clear how enthusiastic and adventurous she is—qualities that should be kept an eye on in the coming months.
