Lira who suffered stroke speaks

Musician Lira recently shared her journey of recovery after suffering a stroke 14 months ago during an interview with Relebogile Mabotja on Radio 702’s The Upside of Failure. She opened up about the challenges she faced, having to relearn how to speak, read, and write.

Explaining why she chose to share her story now, Lira revealed that she wasn’t ready earlier when people asked her to speak about it because she couldn’t communicate properly. However, now she feels prepared and her speech impediment doesn’t bother her anymore.

Valuing life above all, she highlighted that the stroke has taught her to appreciate every moment and not take anything for granted, helping her stay calm and peaceful during stressful times.
