WHAT IS LIRA UP TO?
Lira’s last album release was in 2016. The award-winning songstress released her 16-track album Born Free which broke her 5-year silence in music.
Speaking on the significance of the Born Free title, she said: “I grew up in a world where I faced so many limitations. I realised defining freedom for myself and subsequently living it was what I needed to do. In exploring this, the concept of ‘Born Free’ became clearer. I want people to realise how powerful they are and that they can own their freedom.”
Although her fans are unsure about when she’ll release a new album, she still remains one of the most powerful and impactful voices in South African entertainment.
