Singer Tems cancels UK shows due to voice disorder

By  | 

Fast-rising Nigerian singer, Temilade Openiyi, popularly known as Tems has announced that she is postponing her forthcoming shows in the United Kingdom billed to hold this week.

The 26-year-old made this known via an Instagram post on Tuesday evening, expressing regret over the decision.

Tems revealed that after her last performance, she was diagnosed with Reflux laryngitis — a voice disorder that results from irritation and swelling of the vocal folds.

She added that she needs time to receive medical treatment to save her voice from further damage, promising to make it up to fans who already bought tickets for her shows.

The singer 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 off to protect what’s left of my voice.

“On the Doctors orders. I have to postpone 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.”

About two weeks ago, Tems bagged three nominations for the 2022 edition of BET Awards. After gaining international recognition and a Grammy nomination for her feature in Afrobeats superstar, Wizkid’s “Essence”, the singer has been featured on the albums of global superstars like Drake and Future.
