Popular Nigerian singer Tems recently announced that she would be taking a break from music after being diagnosed with Reflux Laryngitis.
The condition can be explained as an irritation in the back of the throat due to acid or other chemicals that come up from your stomach.
For fans who might want to see their favourite back on the podium soon, you need to know that Reflux Laryngitis takes about two to six months for treatment to be completed.
No singer would obviously want to perform on stage with this condition most patients complain of hoarseness, frequent throat clearing, the sensation of a lump in the throat, cough, or sore throat.
Taking to her Instagram page, Tems revealed she wasn’t feeling too well, and that her upcoming shows would have to take place at a later date.
It breaks my heart to say this but there’s 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 the Doctors orders, I have to postponed the two shows this week the Birmingham show on the 15th June (it’s tomorrow yeah I know ) and the first London show on the 17th july
The new dates for both shows will be announced tomorrow.
All tickets are still valid! Again I am so sorry. I am 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. Love you
