Grammy-winning Nigerian singer Temilade Openiyi, also known as Tems, has revealed the most dangerous thing she has ever done.

Speaking in a recent interview with Elle, Tems recounted a daredevil experience where she was forced to jump out of a plane while skydiving.

The Oscar-nominated diva said jumping out of the plane was the most dangerous thing she has ever done.

Interviewer: “What’s the most dangerous thing you’ve every done?”

Tems: “The most dangerous thing I’ve ever done is jump out of a plane. I don’t even know how high but I went skydiving once. And I think for a second I was like, ‘Am I dying? I don’t know who sent me to do this. I don’t know why I decided to do this but here I am falling.’

“My uncle convinced me and my cousins to jump. I was like, ‘Wow! So cool. Daredevil.’ And then we got into the plane and I was like I will just stay in the plane and they said I can’t. They pushed us out.”

Tems gained global recognition in 2020, courtesy of her collaboration with Wizkid on the song ‘Essence.’
