Tems faces death threats over false pregnancy rumours with American rapper Future

In an interview with The Beat 99.9 FM in Lagos, the Oscar-nominated songstress disclosed the unsettling aftermath of the false pregnancy rumours.

She shared that she received direct messages on social media, containing harsh criticism regarding her alleged relationship with Future, whom she clarified she had never met.

“When I heard [the rumors] that I was pregnant, I didn’t actually think anybody believed it. I didn’t know it was serious until I started getting messages like death threats, like, ‘How dare you? Of all the people in the world, Future, really?’ And I’ve never met him in my life. So it’s crazy,” Tems said during the interview.

Tems, known for her collaborations with international artists, including Drake on the Grammy-winning song “Wait For U,” emphasized that despite her professional interactions with Future and Drake, the rumours were entirely baseless.

She affirmed that she had never encountered the American rapper in person.
