The 18-year-old singer recently was in interview session with The Beat 99.9 Fm radio station were she made a revelation that Burna Boy is the artist she would love to collaborate with.
The sweet-singing, Soulful and delightful Mavin rising star, was accompanied to the session by her boss, Don Jazzy, who has been actively doing a solid major PR job for her on social media.
In the interview she granted, Ayra started by educating her host about the meaning of her name, her self-titled EP, her musical background, early years and more.
When asked by the interviewer which Nigerian artist she’d most love to work with, Ayra Starr promptly replied:
“Errrmm, definitely, probably Burna Boy.”
Remember, on December of 2019, Ayra posted the original song‘Damage’ onto her page, which caught the attention of Mavin Records, the iconic Nigerian record label that has fostered the careers of Tiwa Savage, Rema and Wande Coal.
It was through Don Jazzy [Mavin Records boss], who first introduced Ayra to music production. In a matter of months, Ayra went from producing covers in her bedroom to sitting in a music studio and has produced her first body of work.
