Popular singer, Tems has come out to reveal that she was bullied growing up because of the tone of her voice.

She recently had her say while speaking to the press, and fans have been reacting.

According to her, she began making music because of her introverted nature and lack of friends, and that is why her songs are meant for people who can relate to her experiences and emotions.

Tems added that because her voice wasn’t like other girls, she was very self-conscious as a child.

Her words, “I WAS BULLIED TO THE POINT OF TEARS AND WAS A TARGET OF RIDICULE. THIS LED TO THE BELIEF THAT I SOUNDED LIKE A BOY, OR A FROG, WITH THE IMPRESSION THAT MY VOICE WAS UGLY.

I WAS ALWAYS IN MY LITTLE WORLD. WHEN I DID MAKE FRIENDS, I WOULD TRY TO MAKE THEM SING MY SONGS, AND OTHER GIRLS HAD THESE SWEET, HIGH VOICES AND MY VOICE HAD A BASS.”

WOW.
