I was bullied while growing up – Singer, Tems

The Grammy-winning Nigerian singer, Tems, has recalled how she was bullied over the pitch of her voice.

Tems, in an interview with The Cut, narrated that she didn’t speak until age three.

She said she grew up self-conscious because her voice didn’t sound like other girls.

“I was bullied to the point of tears and was a target of ridicule. This led to the belief that I sounded like a boy, or a frog, with the impression that my voice was ugly.

“I was always in my little world. When I did make friends, I would try to make them sing my songs, and other girls had these sweet, high voices, and my voice had a bass.”

Recall that the songstress stated that she started making music because she doesn’t have friends.
