According to her family’s statement, the stroke affected her speech.

As Lira’s family, we would like to take this opportunity to share some recent development on Lira’s health. Lira recently traveled to Germany for performance but unfortunately suffered a stroke whilst there. As a result, her ability to communicate, in particular, her speech, has been impacted,” read part of the family statement.

The family further revealed that the Feel Good hit-maker, whose real name is Lerato Molapo, is in a hospital in South Africa where she is being treated.

They said that the treatment process is led by the best medical team.

However, they revealed that she won’t be able to hop onto stage any time soon to do what she does best performing to her fans.

“Her medical team has advised that her journey to recover requires patience and therefore it is unlikely that she will be able to perform in the short term,” read the statement.

They also said that the singer is in good spirits and she is surrounded by her loving family and close friends.

Her family also, in advance, thanked prayers, support, kindness, and consideration during this challenging time in Lira’s life.
