The South African singer has been recovering and is now ready to perform again. 

She shared her enthusiasm on social media about her upcoming live show, calling her recovery a miracle.

“It will be my first performance with a live band after having had a stroke in March 2022,” she wrote.

“This is a milestone for me and I’m absolutely thrilled. My recovery is nothing short of a miracle. At first, it seemed like an insurmountable task to even be able to speak. But slowly, every day I made progress, and now we are here.”

Lira thanked her fans for their support throughout her journey.

“I’m so grateful to have your unwavering support, encouragement and patience. I can’t wait to see you!”
