"Hailing from North East Inner City’s Sheriff Street, Temi NLA, meaning Temi the Great, comes from his African name, Temitope, of his father's Yoruba tribe in Nigeria.
While proud of his African heritage, Temi also cherishes his Irish upbringing, which is firmly rooted in the North East Inner City. Attending school at St Laurence O’Toole’s Junior and Senior National Schools, Temi was also a member of the local Sheriff Y.C. football club, as well as the Dockland Boxing Club where he went on to win the Dublin Leagues at 13 years old. Temi has always been an entertainer. With inspirations such as Chris Brown and Neyo, Temi started out as a producer making beats for his friends, but soon realised his place was on the stage. Temi was born for the limelight.
