As an ambassador of Nigerian music and by so doing, Nigeria itself, Tems spoke on the Nigerian effect noting, "Nigerians are always the best at whatever they’re doing, whether that’s braids, hair, make-up, doctors… They’ll give you food and it’ll be over good, so that when you’re paying them, you know why."
