Award-wining songstress Lira suffered a stroke three months ago that affected her speech and ability to communicate. However, she is making great progress in her recovery.
Taking to her Instagram account, she said she can now write and speak, although she needs more time. Lira went on to thank her fans for the overwhelming love and messages of prayers.

"Yesterday marked 3 months since I had a stroke. I’ve made such awesome progress- I’m proud of myself and I give thanks to God. Your prayers have been massively appreciated. I can talk now, although I need a little patience. I can read and I can write. So much love for me, makes me emotional. I am doing so well.," she wrote.

Fans and her industry colleagues took to the comments section to wish her a speedy recovery.

@Mawelakgothatso commented "We love you sis, get well completely soon."
@Precioustheplanner "Ahhhh sis 🥹 We praise God. Sending you more love, light & complete healing."
@Basetsanakumalo "God sees, He knows and He cares. You are the apple of His eye. Jehovah Rapha, our healer is with you darling. Sending you deep love Sis’."
In April, Lira's management took to her Instagram account that she suffered from stroke while she was in Germany. They said she was in good spirits, whilst surrounded by her friends and family.

"Her medical team has advised that her journey to recovery will require patience and therefore, it is unlikely that she will be able to perform in the short term. That said, Lira is in good spirits and is surrounded by her loving family and close friends as she journeys towards a full recovery."
According to News24, a friend of Lira said the incident occurred a while ago, and he did not want to share the information until she had recovered, "She left Germany and has been recovering well. We did not want to share the information too early, so we can give her time to recover. She is doing well and has cancelled her concerts. We thank God."

Lira has made great progress in her recovery. According to her last month, although physically she is unaffected by the stroke, her speech has been affected.

"Thank you for your overwhelming love , 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. Please keep your prayers coming, I can’t wait to be back soon. All my love," she wrote.
We wish her a speedy recovery.
