Discovering the Silver Lining in Prison

Discussing her time in a Ugandan prison in 2020, Nigerian artist Tems described it as an unexpected blessing. Tems and Omah Lay were arrested by Ugandan authorities for allegedly violating COVID-19 protocols after performing at a concert in Kampala on December 12, 2020.

Their detention garnered significant attention, resulting in their release shortly after with the help of the Nigerian government. In an interview with ES Magazine, Tems shared her unique outlook on the ordeal, appreciating the experience and viewing it as a valuable lesson that humbled her. The singer of “Damage” regarded her prison time as a privilege that contributed to her personal development and fostered humility.
