Nigerian musician, Oyinkansola Sarah Aderibigbe, popular known as Ayra Starr, has said that she will not be appreciative if she wins a Headies award in an omitted category.
On Monday, the singer announced this on her X page.
On Sunday during the Headies awards ceremony in Atlanta, Ayra Starr received the best female artist of the year award.
Simi, Tiwa Savage, and Tems, three singers who took home the title in this category in 2022, were also nominated.
“I will never be grateful for winning a category that wasn’t even deemed fit to be announced on stage! Best female artist, na beans?
“We work hard, every single one of us! I’ve seen Tiwa record four hit songs on the same night. Tems breathes and lives for music.
“We didn’t deserve such nonchalance! Nigeria, you didn’t raise me to settle for less”, she wrote on X.
