The debate between Nigerian songstress Tiwa Savage and Tems over who is the “Queen of Afrobeat” has dominated several social media platforms.

Following Tem’ historic performance at the recently concluded BET Awards 2022, the internet has remained buzzing with her fans dubbing her the “Queen of Afrobeats.”

The sensational songstress took two prestigious awards, including ‘Best Act,’ making her the first Nigerian and African female artiste to win the award.

Alongside, a second award, “Best Collaboration” as a result of her feature on Wizkid’s “Essence” which also features Justin Bieber.

With these massive accomplishments, Twitter users praised her, with some tagging her Afrobeats Queens.


While acknowledging Tem’ success, some argue that Tiwa remains the only Afrobeats Queen, noting that she paved the way for all other female artistes and what they now enjoy.

See some reactions below:

@AhlajiOmo tweeted: is STILL the QUEEN OF AFROBEATS!!!! Until she chooses to leave the AFROBEATS.

@big_jemmy said: paved the way for these girls. She broke records and made records on her own before this streaming era and did it when it was so hard surviving in this industry as a female. She gave some artists their biggest career songs too. Hype your fave but respect TIWA SAVAGE!!

@ChamgeMega stated: “Nicki minaj is great but Cardi B has taken over. is great but Tems has taken over. Afrobeats has a new queen. Na Tems and no condition.”

@ShegunTweets asked: “Why you go dey compare tems to tiwa savage? Is it crack? You smoke crack?”

@Kelechii6 tweeted: “Queen Of Afrobeats is Congratulate Tems and move on!”

@SirDavidBent said: “Tems remains an average singer in my opinion, I don’t care about whatever awards she gets via payola or overrated hype. She will never be able to lace Tiwa Savage’ shoe laces. After Tiwa, the only other Nigerian artiste that can compete is Simi. No debates.
