Celine Dion cancels world tour amid battle with neurological disorder
Celine Dion, the ace Canadian singer, has canceled all her upcoming 2023 and 2024 world tour as she continues to battle with neurological disorder.
In December, the songstress revealed that she was diagnosed with Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS).
SPS is a rare neurological disorder with features of an autoimmune disease that causes one’s muscles to tense uncontrollably.
It comprises fluctuating muscle rigidity in the trunk and limbs and a heightened sensitivity to stimuli such as noise, touch, and emotional distress.
While there is no cure for SPS, there are treatments — including anti-anxiety medicines and muscle relaxants — that can slow down its progression.
On Friday, Celine disclosed in a statement that she is unable to successfully prepare for and perform the remainder of the tour.
The ‘My Heart Will Go On’ crooner said she is heartbroken by the sudden cancellation.
Celine added that her medical team has continued to “evaluate and treat the condition”.
“With a sense of tremendous disappointment, Celine Dion’s Courage World Tour today announced the cancellation of all remaining dates currently on sale for 2023 and 2024. As the world has emerged from the pandemic, Celine has continued to be treated for a diagnosed medical condition that prevents her from performing,” the statement reads in part.
“Celine is working hard on her recovery, but at this time is unable to successfully prepare for and perform the remainder of the tour, which was scheduled to run from August 26, 2023 in Amsterdam through October 4, 2023 in Helsinki; then continuing from March 6, 2024 in Prague through April 22, 2024 in London. We do have every hope that someday soon, Celine will be able to come to all of these cities in Europe to perform for her amazing fans, but that time simply is not now.
“I’m so sorry to disappoint all of you once again. I’m working really hard to build back my strength, but touring can be very difficult even when you’re 100%. It’s not fair to you to keep postponing the shows, and even though it breaks my heart, it’s best that we cancel everything now until I’m really ready to be back on stage again, I won’t you all to know, I’m not giving up… and I can’t wait to see you again!”
Celine also announced a refund for the purchased tickets.
Kizz Daniel hints at separation from fiancée
Nigerian singer, Kizz Daniel, has dropped hints suggesting the end of his engagement with his mystery fiancée.
During a recent interview with media personality Angela Yee, The ‘Buga’ crooner gave cryptic responses when questioned about his relationship status, leaving fans speculating about the state of his engagement.
When asked directly about his engagement, the singer responded with a cryptic statement, saying, “What? Jesus is Lord, and God will always remain on the throne.”
Although vague, this remark suggests a potential separation between Kizz Daniel and his fiancée.
Further probing led to Kizz Daniel’s admission that “nothing happened” but emphasised that “life happens.”
He reassured the public that his children are content and in good health, mentioning that he now has three sons.
This caught many off guard, especially considering that the public was previously only aware of his sons, Jalil and Jelani, who were born in 2021 to his undisclosed girlfriend.
Tragically, Kizz Daniel had previously shared the heartbreaking news of Jamal, one of the triplets, passing away just four days after their birth.
However, during the interview with Angela Yee, the artist disclosed that he is now a father of three sons, leaving the public astonished by the revelation of his secret child.

As fans and followers of Kizz Daniel eagerly await further updates, speculation continues to swirl around the reasons behind his hinted separation from his fiancée and the circumstances surrounding the birth of his third child.
