Temilade Openiyi, often known as Tems, is an afrobeats musician who has opened up about her terrifying experience in a Ugandan jail in 2020. 

In an interview with ESMagazine, Tems described how she was kept in a small cell with many other women out of concern that she would be physically abused if she made a mistake. 

According to The Nation, on December 13, 2020, Tems and fellow vocalist Omah Lay were taken into custody for participating in an unlawful concert and going against COVID-19 regulations.

They were held for two days after being accused of transmitting contagious diseases. 

Tems thanked God for the chance to learn about the challenges faced by women in detention and called the event “humbling.” 

She remarked, “Being in their presence was very humbling, and prison was a once-in-a-lifetime experience that I feel honoured to have had because otherwise, I would never have thought about these people.

Do they beat people up here?” I questioned one of the girls present. Will I be severely beaten? “Only if you misbehave,” she said. Tems fought for the rights of women and children imprisoned in like situations after being freed.
