An overly enthusiastic admirer recently compared the Mavin Records musician to international music legend Beyonce Knowles. The supporter continued asserting that Ayra Starr is gradually taking Beyoncé Knowles’ place in the music industry.
Although Ayra Starr, the current rave sensation, still has much to prove in her career, she is currently making a stand to protect her good name.
Ayra Starr quickly replied to the fan’s post after seeing it and refuted the fan’s assertions. The singer of the hit song “Sability” emphasized that the fan was merely setting her up for online trolls to harass and drag her.
“Sabi girl no reach that level O”
Ayra Starr clarified in her response to the fan that she wished to protect her reputation and integrity and wouldn’t be drawn into irrational comparisons. However, the Mavin Records star’s response to the fan was warranted.
Since so many musicians are vying for attention in the music industry, it is simple for some fans to become too enthusiastic and overstate the abilities of their favorite singers. It’s too soon to compare Ayra Starr to icons like Beyoncé Knowles because she is a young musician whose profile is only growing. Acknowledging such a comparison would have portrayed Ayra Starr in a disrespectful light.
Ayra is enjoying a steady climb to fame. The hit song “Away” from her self-titled debut extended play reached number 17 on the US Billboard Top Triller Global and spent two weeks at number four on Nigeria’s TurnTable Top 50 in early 2021. This helped pave the way for the release of her debut full-length mixtape, 19 & Dangerous, in August 2021.
The album, mainly classified as Afropop and R&B, has received positive reviews from critics. In Nigeria, it gave rise to two top forty songs. The lead single, “Bloody Samaritan,” reached the top of the Top 50 chart, making history as the first solo track by a female artist to do so. Starr debuted on the Pandora Predictions chart and peaked at number three on Billboard’s Next Big Sound chart on August 28, 2021.
