Temilade Openiyi who is better known by her stage as Tems, was born to a Nigerian mother and a British father on June 11th, 1995 in Lagos. Her father left her mother, who raised her alone, when she was five years old.

Before moving to Lekki to enroll in Dowen College, she completed her elementary education in Lagos. Later, she moved to Johannesburg to enroll in an Economics program at a South African institution.

Tems was reared in a humble home and discovered her singing talent after signing up for a local chorus. When she was young, she began by honing her skills on her brother's guitar and recording songs with the school choir, which provided her with the groundwork she needed to develop into a gifted musician.

According to a documentary with MU Narratives, when she was dubious of her abilities, her music teacher instructed her to sing using her natural voice.

Tems is 27 years old. She is not yet married and has not made her relationship status publicly known. Keeping it out of the media is definitely her area of expertise.

She finished her high school education at Dowen College in Lekki, where she also received an honors degree.

She pursued her undergraduate studies in a South African university.
