Tems, a Nigerian singer-songwriter, had fans pushing for her to receive the “Award For Most Selfish Person” following her ridiculous attire at the 2023 Oscars event.
The singer, whose real name is Temilade Openiyi, stole the show, at least for the guests in the audience.
Social media users chastised the singer when her lavish dress obscured the vision of fellow Academy Award guests at Sunday’s ceremony.
Tems, who was nominated for Best Original Music for the song “Lift Me Up” from “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” donned a fluffy white gown that curled over the back of her head.
Although Tems looked gorgeous on the red carpet, her gown was perhaps less popular among those in the Dolby Theater.
Images of the “Crazy Tings” singer sticking out in the throng quickly went viral on the internet.
“Lovely but totally messed up for anyone is sitting behind her. I would be upset,” one user remarked.
Another user added, “Wow. Wins the Oscar for most selfish person at an award event,” after watching an attendee craning his neck under Tems’ puffy outfit to see the stage.
A third person on social media even compared her clothing to “old rags.”
“I’d be sooo upset if this gigantic piece of white tule head thing was obstructing my view of the whole Oscars,” a fourth Twitter user added.
“Very arrogant and self-centered to not care if no one behind you can watch the show!!!!”
