Lira recently celebrated her 44th birthday and she took to her page to share a lengthy post detailing how she suffered a stroke while strolling in Germany ahead of her performance. Detailing the heartbreaking ordeal, Lira said she had arrived earlier in Germany before her band ahead of her gig.

She said she was excited to be in Germany because she had not traveled internationally for 3 years due to the COVID-19 restrictions. 

"Today marks a year since I had a stroke. I was so happy to be in Germany 🇩🇪, it had been 3 years since I traveled overseas due to covid and I had traveled alone to Frankfurt, the band was coming from Sweden. I arrived two days before my performance. I walked around taking in the sights and scenes and the people. I had seen a poster with the @nilslandgrenfunkunit featuring Moses and myself. I even saw the venue where we would’ve performed. I spent the whole afternoon walking," she wrote.

Lira said she suffered a stroke as she was taking a stroll and at the time, she was walking alone.

"At about 4:15 pm I had a stroke, the sensation lasted about 15 minutes. I had no idea what was happening, so I kept walking and nobody could see that I had a stroke because I was walking normally. I walked into a restaurant but I couldn’t talk - I moved my mouth but words couldn’t come out. When I realized this, I just broke down. The staff at the restaurant offered me a seat. I couldn’t communicate. I thought about asking them the direction to my hotel, it was nearby - I couldn’t communicate that. Once I stopped crying and got myself together, I left. It took me 2 hours to find my hotel.

The Hamba hitmaker said she was rushed to the hospital after suffering a stroke on March 23rd.

“23 March – Long story short – I fell asleep and in the morning my agent tried to reach me – she sent two people to my room and they figured out that I couldn’t speak. The German promoter came and called the ambulance. The paramedics couldn’t speak English and it’s only when I got to the hospital that I found out that I had a stroke.
Wow !!! I was shocked.”
Lira said she was making huge progress in her although she was learning to talk and write.

“I had Aphasia – I couldn’t speak , or write or read. And I must say that I am lucky! Many people don’t come away with that! I had to learn speaking as a child , learning how to say each letter , and forming a sentence. I did so joyfully though, I had no anxiety, no stress – just peace and calm. I have made such huge progress and I gave a speech at my birthday party. I’m almost there.”

Several celebs and fans took to the comment to send their well-wishes to the singer.
