Some Nigerians have expressed their support for Temilade Openiyi, better known by her stage name Tems, as she takes a break from music following a diagnosis of Reflux Laryngitis.
Tems revealed this in an Instagram post, adding that she had postponed her two international gigs due to a doctor’s order.
Tems expressed sadness over the situation and stated she wasn’t feeling well at the time, but promised her followers she’d be back and better.
Reflux laryngitis is a voice condition caused by the reflux of stomach juices into the throat, causing irritation and swelling of the vocal folds.
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.
