Meanwhile, the songwriter earlier recounted how there was a time in her life she stole food to survive.

Tems stated this while recounting her past struggles, adding that she was very broke and hopeless during that period.

The singer spoke while being interviewed by GQ magazine as she revealed that she used to visit an aunt to get food which she would then take home.

She said; “There were times when I was not just broke; I was broke and hopeless. I used to steal food. I used to go to my aunty’s house just so she could give me food to take home. I just felt like, What is the point of me existing right now? You have to remember those times. Because that person does not exist anymore.”

Also, Tems said that the year she released “Mr Rebel”, she was living alone and struggling financially, noting that she was putting pressure on herself to assist with providing for her family.

She quit her job to focus on music and this made things even harder as the lack of security of stable job meant she would not be able to cater for everyone.
