Last night the family of singer Lira revealed that she suffered a stroke in Germany where she was booked to perform and as a result, her ability to communicate was impacted.
“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. As a result, her ability to communicate, in particular, her speech, has been impacted.”
Lira is currently undergoing treatment here in South Africa, “led by the best medical team available.”
The singer’s 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.”
According to the statement Lira is “in good spirits and is surrounded by her loving family and close friends as she journeys towards a full recovery.”
Her family thanks everyone in advance for their “prayers, support, kindness, and utmost sensitivity and consideration during this very challenging time in her life.”
