The 2023 Oscars’ unfavorable vibes toward the Nigerian Grammy-winning artist were met with a response from the Hollywood power couple.
American power couple ASAP Rocky and Rihanna responded to criticism leveled at Nigerian superstar Tems for her Oscars 2023 outfit.
The 95th Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, also known as the Oscars, which took place in the early hours on, Monday, March 13, 2023, featured a Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter, and performer from Lagos who was a nominee.
Tems, who was nominated in the best original song category for the “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” song “Lift Me Up,” arrived chicly in an opulent bridal-inspired gown that stood out.
Several people thought it was one of the best ensembles of the night, but she received a lot of criticism because some of the visitors seated behind the singer may not have been able to see because of the dress.
In a now-viral footage, a news reporter approaches ASAP Rocky and Rihanna as they exit a building and inquires about their opinions about the backlash Tems faced. Rihanna responded with a sharp smile while ASAP laughed heartily in answer to the query. Rihanna was more focused on getting into the car.
