Some Nigerians have offered prayers for Nigerian singer Temilade Openiyi, known professionally as Tems, as she takes a break from music after being diagnosed with Reflux Laryngitis.
The singer made this known in a post shared on Instagram, stating she has postponed her two International shows in line with the doctor’s order.
While expressing sadness over the issue, Tems said she’s not feeling too good at the moment but promised her fans that she would be back and better.
Reflux laryngitis is a voice disorder that results from irritation and swelling of the vocal folds due to the backflow of stomach fluids into the throat.
She wrote: “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 to protect what’s left of my voice. On the Doctor’s order, I have to postpone the two shows this week the Birmingham show on the 15th June and the London on the 17th July.
“The new date for both shows will be announced tomorrow. All ticket are still valid! Again, I am so sorry, I am so sorry for this inconvenience but I promise to be back better and ever by the grace of God. Then I’ll give you the best show ever, Appreciate you all for the understanding. You mean the world to me.”
Following the revelations, some Nigerians stormed her comment section, praying for her to get well soon.
