She sat down for a chat with The Beat 99.9 FM, and made it known that her love for Asake is not romantic and that she doesn’t want to go into a relationship with him.

The Interviewer asked; 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 responded: “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: “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.”
