Why I wasn’t performing well on stage – Singer, Ayra Starr. Nigerian artiste, Oyinkansola Sarah Aderibigbe, aka Ayra Starr, has revealed the reason for her terrible live performances some months ago.
Recall that the ‘Bloody Samaritan’ crooner was heavily criticized some months ago for being a terrible vocalist after videos of her performing live went viral on the internet.
But appearing on the latest episode of the Afrobeats Intelligence podcast hosted by Joey Akan, Ayra Starr said she was going through a lot during that period.
According to her, she couldn’t sing for two months but was still forcing herself to perform.
She said, “I think for me I was not properly taking care of my voice. I was not doing vocal warm ups at all.
“Sometimes I’m not even talking at all, then I’m just on stage and I’m shouting and singing. I couldn’t properly sing for like two months. And I was performing everyday still with that voice.
“So, people literally were like, Ayra cannot sing. I’m like, it is not as if I can not sing o, I’m going through a lot.”
