  • by

Grammy-winning artist Tyla is postponing her world tour due to an injury, taking to Instagram on Thursday to post a statement, with the caption: “Y’all still gonna see me around Tygers so don’t worry too much…just know when I’m back to performing pain free, I’m gonna be even more of a problem It’s hard having to turn down opportunities you’ve been waiting your whole life for but God has his plan ”

Tyla’s tour was scheduled to kick off on March 21, including an appearance  at Coachella in April. She confirmed that for her North American tour dates, fans’ tickets will be automatically refunded, while for international dates, ticket providers will reach out with options.

The South African singer disclosed: “For the past year I’ve been silently suffering with an injury that has tragically worsened. I’ve seen doctors and specialists with high hopes but the pain has only become more agonizing as has the severity of the situation.”  Sharing that she is ‘heartbroken’ to not be able to proceed with her tour, Tyla said: “in consulting with medical professionals it’s become increasingly clear that continuing any festival or tour dates would jeopardize my long-term health and safety.” She added that she and her team are “working diligently on a spectacular show” as soon as she’s recovered and ready to return safely to the stage.

Tyla rose to fame in the U.S. with her single, ” Water,” which reached No.1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and No. 1 on the Billboard U.S. Afrobeats Songs and Hip-Hop/R&B charts. She won the inaugural best African music performance at the 2024 Grammys.
