In a heartfelt revelation that has sent shockwaves through the Nigerian music industry, the multi-talented music sensation, Teniola Apata, widely known as Teni, has opened up about her harrowing battle with a life-threatening throat infection.
The artist shared her story in a candid Instagram post, shedding light on her ordeal and the resilience that has led to her triumphant return to the stage.
Teni recounted the challenges she faced during the recording of her highly anticipated second album, ‘Tears of the Sun,’ in July 2023. It was during this crucial phase of her career that Teni’s life took an unexpected turn.
She said, “While recording my second album ‘Tears of the Sun’ in July 2023, I was diagnosed with a life-threatening throat infection. After different bouts of temporary voice loss, my doctors advised me to undergo a major operation or risk permanent voice loss.
“I was hospitalised in September 2023 after repeated cases of exhaustion. I had lots of injectables in five days. October 2023, I mildly recovered my singing voice after seeking medical assistance despite not undergoing surgery.
“November 2023: I am fully back on stage. My new single ‘Malaika’ is my song of praise and thanksgiving to God for his mercy and grace.” she said.
