“I’m blessed to say my voice is not permanently damaged”: SZA
Earlier in May, SZA had temporarily dropped out of TDE Championship tour after claiming that her voice was "permanently injured" in a series of now-deleted tweets.
Late last month, we reported how after being diagnosed with swollen vocal cords, SZA went on to claim that her voice was "permanently injured", causing her to temporarily drop-out from TDE’s Championship Tour.
"Ive been troubleshooting for a while now and Usually steroids and pushing through help. They don’t this time. I’m not sick my voice just won’t f*cking work," the Grammy-nominated hip-hop sensation wrote on Instagram at the time, much to the worry of her fans. But it looks like things have taken a turn for the better and we can breathe easy now.
As Vulture reports, in tweets posted Sunday night (17 June), the singer updated her fans, assuring them that her voice is on the road to recovery. “Thank u to the incredible team of doctors and vocal technicians that have taken time to see me over the last few weeks in every city,” SZA tweeted.
“I’m blessed to say my voice is not permanently damaged and I’ve been working daily to get back.” The 'Ctrl' hit-maker also took a moment to thank all her fans for sending her "loving kindness and prayers".
Firstly I wanna thank everyone for sending me loving kindness and extending your energy my direction .Thank u for your prayers, I feel them and deeply appreciate you 🙏🏾❤️ I love you.— SZA (@sza) June 17, 2018

Despite the latest positive developments, it is still unclear if SZA will be rejoining the Championship Tour anytime soon. She did, however, perform at the Firefly festival over the weekend and is scheduled to open for her fellow alumnus from Columbia High School, Lauryn Hill for a show in September. Earlier this month, SZA was inducted into Columbia High School’s hall of fame; she graduated from there in 2008. Also previously honored by the school was fellow graduate Lauryn Hill.
