Nigerian singer Ayra Starr, born Oyinkansola Sarah Aderibigbe, stirred controversy at the recent Headies awards when she boldly declared that she wouldn’t express gratitude for winning an unannounced category.

The announcement came via her social media platform, X, just one day after the awards ceremony.

During the prestigious Headies awards held in Atlanta, Ayra Starr clinched the title of “Best Female Artiste of the Year.”

She faced stiff competition from renowned artists like Simi, Tiwa Savage, and Tems, who had previously claimed this honor in the 2022 edition.

In a strongly-worded post, Ayra Starr questioned the significance of winning an unpublicized category, stating, “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?”

She went on to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of her fellow artists, highlighting Tiwa Savage’s remarkable feat of recording four hit songs in one night and Tems’ unwavering commitment to music.
