A Nigerian singer, Tiwa Savage had announced a temporary departure from music due to a virus infection that has taken a toll on her vocal cords.
The acclaimed artiste has decided to step away from the limelight for an indefinite period, citing the adverse impact of the throat infection on her vocal abilities.
This development bears a resemblance to the situation faced by Tekno, who was forced to take a two-year break from music due to a similar vocal cord ailment before his recent comeback.
With many of her fans hopeful for her swift recovery and a return to the music stage, others simply expressed concerns that the development may keep her away from music for more than a year.
idanNews learnt that Savage’s temporary departure from music carries financial consequences.
The artiste had been booked for several shows and concerts throughout the remainder of this year and up until February next year.
This latest development means that Savage will have to refund what she had been previously paid for her scheduled appearances.
Vocal cord infections have previously had a significant impact on artists’ careers, with the late music icon, Sound Sultan, reportedly facing a similar ailment before his untimely passing three years ago.
Her fans eagerly await her return and a resurgence of her musical prowess once she has fully recovered.
