Oyogist has learned that Nigerian singer Temilade Openiyi aka Tems has been diagnosed with Reflux Laryngitis.
The music star made this known via her Instagram page on Tuesday, June 14, 2022.
“It breaks my heart to say this but there has been 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,” she wrote.
“On doctor’s order, I have to postpone the two shows this week. The new dates for both shows will be announced tomorrow.”
Reflux laryngitis is an irritation in the back of the throat due to acid or other chemicals that come up from your stomach. This usually happens at night when you’re asleep. Other terms for this problem include gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR), acid reflux, and chronic laryngitis.
