"I don’t let people bring pressure to my creative space. I tell them to leave it at the door.” Rising star Tems covers Notion's 89th issue.

Blocking out the politics of the industry and the growing noise of her success, rising star Tems is mapping out her next steps with laser-sharp focus and a promise to put her integrity first.
Covering Notion 89, Tems talks about protecting her creative space, staying true to her values, and why the narrow categorisation of African artists needs to change.
