Afro-pop singer Lira says she is on the road to recovery following her recent stroke. The 'Something Inside So Strong' hitmaker shared an update on her condition this week. 

Lira's team revealed in April that she had been hospitalised after suffering a stroke in Germany. Her ability to communicate was affected. 

Lira, whose real name is Lerato Molapo, says her speech is still impacted but she is doing well.

"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," she wrote. 

The 43-year-old asked her fans to continue praying for her.

"I will be taking some time to focus on my recovery. Please keep your prayers coming, I can’t wait to be back soon."

Several celebrities took to the comments section to show their support.

"God bless you, sweetheart. He’s got you in the palm of His hand," Basetsana Kumalo commented.  Salamina Mosese wrote: "Queen. You are loved. God’s best is wished for you."
