Teni Apata, the Nigerian singer, has revealed that she was diagnosed with a throat infection while recording her second album.


Teni took to her Instagram page to share a video of her journey while battling with throat infection and temporary voice loss.

The singer disclosed that she was diagnosed with the “life-threatening” infection in July.

She said she sought medical assistance and was advised to undergo surgery to avoid losing her voice permanently.


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.”
