Music songstress Temilade Openiyi, aka Tems, has once again recounted her life before the fame. She revealed that there was a time in her life she stole food to survive.

Tems spoke while being interviewed by GQ magazine as she revealed that she used to visit an aunt to get food which she would then take home.

She stated this while recounting her past struggles, adding that she was very broke and hopeless during that period.

She said; “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.

Tems added; “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.”
