She further detailed that the stroke has unfortunately affected her speech.

“ Dear fam. Thank you for your overwhelming love and support and prayers. I am recovering well. Physically, I have been unaffected, I am strong and healthy. The stroke has unfortunately affected my speech, however, I am making lots of progress every day. I will be taking some time to focus on my recovery.”

The Ngiyazifela hitmaker urged people to keep their prayers flooding in as plans to make a return soon.

Last month news broke on the internet that the musical powerhouse had suffered a stroke in Germany, leaving many deeply concerned about her health.

While social media came together to create a hashtag Pray for Lira to demonstrate their love and support, her family assured them that she was in good care.

“ As Lira’s family, we would like to take this opportunity to share some recent developments regarding Lira’s health. Lira recently travelled to Germany for a performance but unfortunately suffered a stroke whilst there.
