Nigerian Afrobeats and RnB singer, Tems has been nominated for the 2022 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.
The artist who was featured on Wizid‘s global hit, ‘Essence‘ was nominated alongside Adele (UK), Camilo (Colombia), Tones and I (Australia), BTS (South Korea), Rosalía (Spain) and Olivia Rodrigo (US) in the Global Music Star category.
Furthermore, the show will be co-hosted by iCarly star Miranda Cosgrove and four-time Super Bowl champion Rob Gronkowski.
“Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards has always been such a unique show with tons of energy, superstars and of course, lots of slimes,” Cosgrove said. “Nickelodeon has always been my family and to co-host this iconic show alongside Gronk will be a blast.”
The 2022 Kids’ Choice Awards will be held on April 9, 2022 in Santa Monica, US.
“Tems reminds us of why we set out on a journey to reimagine, reshape and rebrand Africa,” said Monde Twala, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Paramount in Africa.
Speaking on the nomination, Georginah Machiridza, Executive Head Content Strategy & 3rd Party Channels at MultiChoice, said; “We have long believed that African creatives such as Tems have the power to put the continent on the map and we’re excited to see this vision coming to life.
“Her nomination as Global Music Star for Nickelodeon’s Kid’s Choice Awards is evidence that African creatives have what it takes to take on the global stage and more importantly to share African stories with the world, in this case through music.
“We are proud to be a part of this through offering a platform for creative showcasing and we wish Tems all the best at the awards.”
Voting is now open on the Kids’ Choice Awards website. Finally, the show will be broadcast on Nickelodeon, TeenNick, Nicktoons and Nick Jr.
