However, they lost the award to “NAATU NAATU” from RRR. This was Tems first Oscar nomination and even though she lost the award, it was still a win to be recognised at the Oscars.
Netizens flooded the comments with reactions. Some of which read:
“Abeg this Oscar people can never see anything nice in our music and videos even when they know it is the best of them all. Well done Tems, me l appreciate all ur efforts. God bless ur handwork sis”
“Before u say anything, go watch RRR, that whole movie and every song in it deserves every award win-able! I love Rih and Tems but the Oscars did this one right!”
