Tyla has postponed her first headlining tour due to an "agonising" injury.

The South African singer-songwriter took to Instagram on Thursday to announce that she has been forced to postpone her first-ever headlining tour due to an injury.

"My Tygers, all of you know that this moment you have all helped me transform into a reality, has been a life-long dream," Tyla began. "I am so grateful and humbled by this past year and the way it's changed my life. I can never thank you guys enough for all your loving support, all the joy, the laughter, and the wins!"

The 22-year-old went on to explain that she has been struggling with an injury for the past year.

"As much as this is something I would rather have dealt with privately, Its important that I share what I have to share with you today. For the past year I've been silently suffering with an injury that has tragically worsened," she revealed. "I've seen doctors and specialists with high hopes but the pain has only become more agonising as has the severity of the situation."

The Grammy winner added, "I am absolutely heartbroken to have to say this but as of right now I won't be able to proceed with the tour."

In the post, the Water hitmaker stated that continuing with her performances would "jeopardise (her) long-term health and safety". However, she noted that she hopes to return to the stage "this summer".

The tour, in support of her upcoming self-titled debut album, was due to kick off in Oslo, Norway, on 21 March and conclude in Minneapolis on 28 May.

The hitmaker shot to international fame in 2023 with the release of her single Water. The track reached the top ten in sixteen countries, including the U.K. and U.S.
