Popular Nigerian singer, Tems has been diagnosed with Reflux Laryngitis. The singer announced the sad news on her Instagram page.
Tems disclosed in the statement that she has had to cancel several of her scheduled gigs in the United Kingdom due to Reflux Laryngitis.
The music diva, whose real name is Temilade Openiyi, also expressed sadness at having to reschedule the events.
Hey gang, it breaks my heart to say this but there is no other option for me.
I’m not feeling too good at the moment. After my last performance, I was diagnosed with Reflux Laryngitis and I have to take some time off to protect what’s left of my voice.
On doctor’s advise, I’ve postponed the two shows this week, the Birmingham show on the 15th of June (It’s tomorrow, yeah I know) and the first London show on the 17th of July.
The new dates will be announced tomorrow. All tickets are still valid. Again I’m so sorry for this inconvenience but I promise to be back, better than ever by the grace of God.
Then I’ll give you the best show ever. Appreciate you all for understanding. You mean the world to me.
Reflux Laryngitis is a voice condition caused by stomach acid backflowing into the throat and voice box. Reflux causes inflammation and swelling of the vocal cords, according to studies.
Fans have been wishing Tems a speedy recovery since she made the announcement.
