Nigerian musician, Tems, has opened up about her love life while explaining why she isn’t interested in dating colleague Asake.

Tems has always expressed her admiration for Asake and his music. During an interview at the Time 100 Gala in New York, she said that her current favorite artists are Tyla and Asake.

She has previously spoken about her passion for the “Yoga” singer, but in a new interview with The Beat 99.9 FM, Tems stressed that her love for Asake is not romantic and that she is not interested in dating the musician.

Here’s how the conversation went:

INTERVIEWER: Is directing something you’re looking to do not just for yourself but for other artists as well? And if so, who do you think you’d like to work with?

TEMS: Uhmmm, I’d want to direct a video for Asake [laughs and blushes].

INTERVIEWER: Oh my gosh, Tems, don’t do that.

TEMS: No, because I can tell that he’s very artsy and he thinks outside the box. Ah ah.

INTERVIEWER: Just for work right? You just like him for work?

TEMS: Just to direct the videos. Asin, what do you mean?

INTERVIEWER: Oh, because he’s mine!

TEMS: [Realizing] Ohhh? Ah! Me?! Oh no oh. You’ve got the wrong girl. Please have him all to yourself. He’s all yours. I have my own so…[laughs and blushes]. I have my own so I know, I’m okay. But I think Asake is a really cool guy.
