Grammy-award winning duo, Burna Boy, Tems dazzle at 2023 Met Gala
Burna Boy and Tems, two Grammy-winning Nigerian singers, made their debut at the Met Gala, the world’s most prestigious and glamorous fashion event.
On Monday night, the afrobeats stars dazzled on the red carpet of the 2023 Met Gala, which was held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.
Burna Boy attended the event dressed in a matching black and blue slightly checkered ensemble with a generous cape-like extension of the same material flowing behind him.
Tems made a fashion statement in a custom Rober Wun gown that featured a black corset-like top, a flowing regal white skirt, and elbow-length gloves.
The Oscar-nominated singer was styled by Dunsin Wright.
The 2023 Met Gala, titled “Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty”, also had celebrities such as Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Cardi B, Diddy, Dr. Dre, Naomi Campbell and South African comedian, Trevor Noah in attendance.
In a side interview with ESSENCE, Tems expressed excitement for making her Met Gala debut.
She said, “Oh my goodness! I have never done it [Met Gala] before. So, I’m so excited. It’s my first time. It’s going to be lit!”
