Tems suffers voice disorder, postpones UK shows

Tems, the Nigerian singer, has postponed her forthcoming shows in the United Kingdom (UK) after being diagnosed with reflux laryngitis.

The musician, whose real name is Temilade Openiyi, broke the news in a statement via her social media pages on Tuesday.

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.

The ‘Damages’ crooner said her Birmingham show scheduled for June 15 and that of London billed for July 17 have been postponed.

The singer said new dates for the shows would be announced on Wednesday.

“It breaks my heart to say this but there’s no other option for me.. I’m not feeling too good at the moment,” she wrote.

“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,” she wrote.

“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.”
