Ayra Starr throws shade at Wizkid [Video]

Popular Nigerian singer, Ayra Starr has thrown a shade at her colleague, Wizkid by proclaiming that Afrobeats is the paramount genre globally. 

The 'Rush' crooner disclosed in a recent interview with Capital Xtra how Afrobeat holds immense significance for her, highlighting its widespread influence and dominance, not only in Africa but also across continents, notably in the US.

Recall that Wizkid had expressed a recent disassociation from Afrobeat, as he cautioned against labelling him as an Afrobeat artist and discouraged the downloading of his upcoming album by fans who were drawn to him during his earlier Pakurumo days.

She said, “Afrobeat means everything to me. Afrobeat is taking over, it has been popping for such a long time. It has been a long time coming. It is the best genre in the world.

“It has been a long time coming because African music has been doing its thing in the continent and outside the continent. Even before it came to America. Afrobeats is the best genre in the world.”
