Ayra Starr calls out The Headies Awards organizers For “Nonchalance”

Ayra Starr, a renowned singer and performer, has expressed her dissatisfaction with the way the Headies Awards 2023 organizers presented her with the Best Female Artist of the Year award. The award, which she won, was announced after the live show held on September 3, 2023, rather than during the main event. Ayra Starr took to social media hours after the award show to share her thoughts on this.

Questioning the Significance of the Award

In her social media post, Ayra Starr conveyed her reluctance to celebrate winning an award that was not deemed significant enough to be announced on the main stage during the Headies Awards 2023 ceremony. She questioned the value of the “Best Female Artist of the Year” category, asserting that female artists, including herself, put in tremendous effort and dedication to their craft. She highlighted the remarkable achievements of fellow artists like Tiwa Savage and Tems, emphasizing that such recognition should not be sidelined.

Differing Perspectives on Headies Awards’ Intentions

While Ayra Starr expressed her disappointment with the award presentation, some industry experts argue that the Headies Awards may not intend to diminish the hard work and achievements of Nigerian female artists. The discussion revolves around the perception of the award category and whether it should be given prominence during the live show.

Ayra Starr’s Ongoing Recognition

Fortunately, Ayra Starr’s recognition in the music industry extends beyond the Headies Awards. She has received nominations in various categories at prestigious events, including the 2023 MTV Video Music Awards. Ayra Starr is among the notable Nigerian artists nominated in the Best Afrobeats category, solidifying her position among the industry’s top talents.
