2023 Oscars: Tems loses Best Original Song award



Famous singer, Tems, loses the Best Original Song award at the prestigious 2023 Oscars event which marks the first nomination in the history of the Nigerian entertainment industry.

Earlier this year, the international sensation made history by being the first Nigerian artist to receive an Oscar nomination.

However, at the 95th edition of the Oscars Academy Awards, Tems was unable to secure a win. She was nominated for her work as a songwriter on ‘Lift Me Up,’ a song featured in Marvel’s ‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.’

Others nominated in the category were ‘Applause’ from ‘Tell It like a Woman’ by Diane Warren, ‘Hold My Hand’ from ‘Top Gun Maverick’ by Lady Gaga and BloodPop, and ‘This Is a Life’ from ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ by Ryan Lott, David Byrne, and Mitski.

The Oscar for Best Original Song went to ‘Naatu Naatu’ from ‘RRR’, which was composed by MM Keeravani, with lyrics by Chandrabose and vocals by Rahul Sipligunj and Kaala Bhairava.
