Celebrated Nigerian female music sensation, Tiwa Savage, has made a painful decision to temporarily stay away from music.

The reason, according to her, is linked to a debilitating virus infection that has affected her vocal cords.

VerseNews reports that the singer, known for her performances and chart-topping hits, made the announcement through an emotional statement on Tuesday, revealing that she is currently grappling with a troublesome virus that has persisted for several weeks.


The gravity of the situation has compelled her to follow the advice of medical professionals and undertake strict vocal rest for the next few months.

“I have been fighting off a virus for the past few weeks,” Tiwa Savage disclosed, her disappointment evident in her words, “and been firmly instructed to be on strict vocal rest for the next few months.”

The consequences of this virus are profound as they have prompted Savage to make the painful decision to postpone all her upcoming shows and performances.

For a performer who thrives on the connection with her fans and the thrill of live music, this step has been nothing short of heart-wrenching one.


In a statement, Savage expressed her sadness and devastation, saying, “I am heartbroken, and I am devastated, but I have to do this to save what’s left of my voice.”

She went on to offer her apologies to her fans and all those eagerly awaiting her performances, assuring them that this “pause” is temporary.

“I am sorry and I promise to be back once I am fully healed.”


The news of Tiwa Savage’s temporary hiatus has elicited a wave of sympathy and support from fans and fellow artists alike.

While Savage’s absence from the stage is undoubtedly a significant loss to the music world, her fans remain hopeful that the hiatus will allow her to recover fully and return stronger than ever.
