Tems, a Nigerian musician, has been diagnosed with reflux laryngitis and will be taking a hiatus from singing.
According to a message the talented singer made on Instagram, she has postponed her future gigs due to a doctor’s mandate.
Reflux laryngitis is a condition in which acid or other chemicals from your stomach irritate the back of your throat. This frequently happens in the middle of the night when you’re sleeping. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR), acid reflux, and chronic laryngitis are among words used to describe this condition.
“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 laryngtis and I have to take some time off to protect what’s left of my voice.
On the Doctors orders. I have postponed the two shows this week, the Birmingham show on the 15th and the first London show on the 17th.
The new dates for both shows will be announced tomorrow,” her post on Instagram reads.
