Nigerian songstress, Temilade Openiyi better known as Tems has been diagnosed with Reflux Laryngitis.
The 27-year-old star made this known through her official Instagram account on Tuesday, 14th June 2022.

She wrote,
“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.”

“On doctor’s order, I have to postpone the two shows this week. The new dates for both shows will be announced tomorrow.”


She apologised for the inconveniences the postponement may have caused.


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.
