“Music for me, is the person I talk to about life. It doesn’t judge, it just listens,” reveals Toronto’s own Témi (his full name meaning “Mine is worthy of thanks” in Yoruba), R&B and urban singer.

His older brothers introduced him to the sounds of Motown and the musical influences of “Babyface.” Instantly, he fell in love with music at the young age of 5, entering talent shows and contests.

Témi is now focused on performing music that has a soulful and meaningful sound to it. “I’m glad that people can relate to my music and it touches them and gets people through situations. That’s what music is supposed to do.”
