Tems has become the first Nigerian musician to be nominated for an Oscar award for helping write “Lift Me Up”, one of the soundtracks on Marvel’s “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”.

Tems co-wrote “Lift Me Up” with Rihanna, Oscar-winning composer Ludwig Göransson, and director Ryan Coogler. “Blessed to have written this song in honour of Chadwick Boseman and even more blessed to hear the baddest @badgalriri voice it to perfection,” the Nigerian singer-songwriter wrote last October while sharing the cover art of the song that has a portrait of Rihanna.

Tems, who has already worked with Beyonce, Drake, Justin Bieber, Future, Wizkid, and Khali, recorded a cover of Bob Marley’s “No Woman, No Cry” for the Wakanda Forever Prologue EP.

In October, the Afrobeats sensational singer took home one of the biggest awards at the annual BMI London Awards. She won the Impact Prize which honors leading songwriters, music publishers and composers in the UK and Europe. She was shortlisted for a Grammy and Golden Globe recently.

The singer is yet to comment on her historic Oscar nomination. The 95th Academy Awards will be aired live at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California, on March 12.

Check out the full list of nominations released on Tuesday.
