She once told DO2DTUN in an exclusive interview that she's grateful to be a part of music at this time when Nigerian artists are making a global impact.

“Thank God, at last! Witnessing this motivates me to make more music because I know that not just Nigerians are listening to me now. I’m reaching people in countries I never even knew would like my music.”

For Ayra Starr, whose musical style encompasses Afropop, R&B, and soul, it's a good beginning.
