Joyce Skefu is on the road to recovery after suffering a stroke. 

The actor took to Instagram to thank her fans for the support they have shown her ever since she announced her medical condition.

"Gooday my beautiful friends, I thought I should share a bit about my recovery journey, thank you for your kindness, love, and support, Love wins," she wrote. 

She went on to detail how her stroke came about. 

"Stroke is cruel, it is mean. It is hiding," she said in a video posted on Instagram.  

"First and foremost, there was no sign, no sign at all," she explains. 

"I just woke up in the morning and I couldn't walk. It was four o'clock in the morning, I wanted to go to the loo. The next thing, I couldn't get off the bed, so I threw myself on the floor and I watched half of my body die slowly," she said. 

"It was so scary. It was traumatizing," she added.
