NIGERIA- A flamboyant outfit worn by Nigerian singer Temilade Openiyi, also known as “Tems”, at Sunday night’s Academy Awards blocked the view of fellow attendees.
A nomination for Tems was given at the 95th Academy Awards, which were held at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California, in the United States.
In spite of the praise she has received for the flamboyant dress she wore at the show, some Nigerians have criticized her for it.
For the title track of “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever,” the Grammy Award winner appeared in a puffy white gown that wrapped around her back.
Despite how stunning she looked on the red carpet, the implausible outfit probably didn’t go over well with those sitting inside the Dolby Theater.
“Imagine waiting your whole life to be at the Oscars and you end up sitting behind a stratus cloud,” one sniped.
While some Nigerians affirmed that she registered her presence at the show through her dress, others criticized her.
mary__ayomi said, “Abeg they should leave my Tems. Cardi and Nicki have done worse. No be we tell them not to get high chairs for those at the back.”
“She looks stunning!!!” said its_sherrifah, but quickly added, “Everyone learns from their mistakes.”
Meanwhile, im_wblaq blamed Tems’ stylist saying, “The stylist should know better. Should’ve been made detachable.”
“How did she feel about being the only one that’s extra? I mean, look at every other person,” nellyb72 wondered.
“They should have given her the back seat,” sherryberries_gifts_etal said.
