Tems, a Nigerian musician, has opened up about her directing and love life. The singer also expressed why she is not interested in dating Asake.

Tems has consistently voiced her respect for Asake and his music. During an interview at the Time 100 Gala in New York, she stated that Tyla and Asake are her current favorite artists.

Although Tems had previously expressed her admiration for the “Yoga” singer, she made it clear in a recent interview with The Beat 99.9 FM that her relationship with Asake is platonic and that she has no desire in dating the musician. This is how the discussion unfolded:

INTERVIEWER: Is directing something you’re looking to do not just for yourself but for other artistes as well? And if so, who do you think you’d like to work with?

Tems: 10 Things to Know About the Nigerian Singer-Songwriter

TEMS: Uhmmm, I’d want to direct a video for Asake [laughs and blushes].

INTERVIEWER: Oh my gosh, Tems, don’t do that.

TEMS: No, because I can tell that he’s very artsy and he thinks outside the box. Ah ah.

INTERVIEWER: Just for work right? You just like him for work?

TEMS: Just to direct the videos. Asin, what do you mean?

INTERVIEWER: Oh, because he’s mine!

TEMS: [Realizing] Ohhh? Ah! Me?! Oh no oh. You’ve got the wrong girl. Please have him all to yourself. He’s all yours. I have my own so…[laughs and blushes]. I have my own so y’know, I’m okay. But I think Asake is a really cool guy.
