World-class Nigerian singer and rare vocalist, Tems has received backlashes online for wearing a view-blocking outfit At the 2023 Oscars.
The singer wore a white dramatic dress with a shoulder piece that wrapped around her head, making audience members sitting behind her unable to see the stage at the Dolby Theatre, Ovation Hollywood in Los Angeles on Sunday night.
Trying to fix himself as an attendee sitting behind Tems, a tweep GEAfolayan wrote,
“At all times, we need to consider others. Tems’ elaborate outfit actually blocked the view of fellow attendees at Sunday night’s Academy Awards. I’ll feel bad if I were to be among fellow attendees sitting behind her.”
Another tweep, Big_Paul001 wrote,
“It was unthoughtful, improper and inconsiderate. For equity sake she should’ve sat at the last row and not at the mid row thereby obstructing others and inconveniencing them.”
Meanwhile, another Nigerian tweep bemoaned the act with a touch of humour. He wrote:
“Na so inec take block us”
