Musician Teniola Apata, professionally known as Teni, has disclosed that she was diagnosed with a life-threatening throat infection in July.

Teni made this known in an Instagram post while narrating her ordeal with a throat infection and temporary voice loss.

In a now-trending video on social media, the singer explained that her doctor advised her to undergo surgery to avoid losing her voice permanently.

“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.
