Nigerian singer-songwriter Ayra Starr is known for her unique voice, melodic singing style and ability to blend diverse genres such as R&B, pop and afrobeats. Her first EP entitled "Ayra Starr", released in early 2021, hit the charts like lightning.
Ayra Starr draws inspiration from the deep roots embodied in Angelique Kidjo, the fierce confidence of Rihanna, '90s fashion trends and the edgy aesthetic of emo-pop.
Ayra Starr describes her musical style as afrosoul and presents it with a stirring voice reminiscent of an aspiring Gen Z queen. Their music combines influences from classical Yoruba and Beninese music as well as artists such as 2Face and Wande Coal. She speaks for a generation of young women around the world who feel united in their self-discovery, shaped by fear and expressed through emojis.
