We had a chance to chat with Toronto/ Atlanta based, Temi. He has recently released a video for his single, “Follow You” which you can see below, along with our newest Five Questions With segment! Enjoy!
Care to introduce yourself to our readers?
My name is Temi (Pronounced Tay-Me.) Born in Nigeria, raised in Toronto and traveled to Atlanta, GA. Growing up music was always the center attention between talent shows and contests. I was previously with a group at the start of my career and went solo signed to rapper Ludacris in 2014. Since going solo I have released seven singles and one EP, including my latest single, “Follow You.”
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style?
My music is the story of my life in some sense whether it be my personal experience or someone close to me. I write music that is relatable to those who are listening. When I write I listen to a beat and use my life experiences and the words just flow out with the sound.
Do you have any upcoming shows? For someone who has yet to see you live, how would you explain your live performance?
I have a canadian school tour on the way in the fall but you can log onto my website www.temiofficial.com or Instagram @temi_music to check out upcoming performances. A live performance gives a bit of fun, entertainment and a lot of good music.
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
I can’t pick just one. All of my songs have meaning to me in some way shape or form. My newest single is a nice Summer vibe to make anyone want to fall in summer love called, Follow You. And I have some new soft rock influences material I’ve recently started dabbling in and I’m really feeling it
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/ artists?
There are a lot of artists from canada that i respect from Drake to Justin Beiber but I would have to give a shout out to my label mates, Krissi Hunter and Schyler London.
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
