MTV has revealed its nominations for the 2022 Video Music Awards.

Nigeria’s superstar, Tems, made it to the nomination list for her collaboration with Future on his hit single, “Wait For U,” which also features Drake in the best hip-hop category. The single is from Future’s album, “I Never Liked You,” and it features vocal samples from Tems’ “Higher.”

This is another groundbreaking moment for African and global fans of Tems. It follows her appearance as a songwriter on Beyoncé‘s “Renaissance” album and her prologue in Marvel’s “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.”

The 2022 VMAs will air live from New Jersey’s Prudential Center on Sunday, August 28.
