Singer, Teni Recalls Battle with ‘Life-Threatening’ Throat Infection

Teni Apata, a Nigerian singer, has disclosed that she had a throat illness while working on her second album.

Teni came to Instagram to share a video of her experience dealing with a throat illness and temporary voice loss.

In July, the singer revealed that she was diagnosed with the “life-threatening” infection.

She stated that she sought medical attention and was urged to have surgery to avoid permanently losing her voice.

Teni said she later recovered “my singing voice” without undergoing surgery.

The singer described her healing as a “testimony”, adding that ‘Tears of the Sun’ – her new album would be released on November 17.

“July 2023, I was diagnosed with a life threatening throat infection while recording my second album,” she said.

“After different bouts of temporary voice loss, doctors advised me to undergo a major operation or risk permanent voice loss.

“September 2023, I was hospitalised after repeated cases of exhaustion. Ahh my eyes have seen… I had lots of injectables in five days.

“October 2023, mildly recovered my singing voice after seeking medical assistance despite not undergoing surgery.

“November 2023, I am fully back on stage. I finished my album ‘Tears of the Sun’, set to be released on November 17.

“My new single ‘Malaika’ is my song of praise and thanksgiving to God for his mercy and grace.”

Teni gained prominence after releasing ‘Fargin’ in 2017.

In 2021, the singer delivered ‘Wondaland’, her debut album.

Last week, Teni put out ‘Malaika’, a track off of her upcoming album.
