Record label rejected Tems in 2018 but she’s now rolling with Drake, Rihanna – PR Expert, Chidi Okereke

Nigerian PR professional and social media influencer, Chidi Okereke aka Chydee has revealed how musical rave of the moment, Tems needed help promoting her music.

According to Chidi, the singer reached out to him to help her promote his music, after listening, he tried to get a top music executive to help her but the record label turned Tems down, saying she sounds ”Too R&B”.

The PR expert also shared screenshots of old WhatsApp chats with Tems in 2018, and the music executive who was managing Indie Label.

He shared the story to motivate people to keep striving hard to achieve their goals and aspirations.

Chidi wrote; ”July 2018, Tems messaged me about promoting her music. I checked her out and liked the songs so much that I reached a friend who was managing an Indie label. But the label owner said she sounded too R&B and declined.

Today, Tems is global, rolling with WizKid, Drake & Rihanna. I don’t blame him to be honest. He’d been around enough to know that her sound was going to be a hard sell.

Just sharing this conversation because it’s a reminder that if we believe strongly in ourselves, we should keep striving. The world will catch up to our gift.”
