Popular media personality Steve Onu aka Yaw has recounted how Ayra Starr refused to attend Headies Awards despite the organisers reaching out to her.

Yaw Accuses Ayra Starr of Snubbing Headies Award, Not Grammys

The broadcaster spoke on this while reacting to how no Nigerian musician bagged an award at the 2024 Grammys despite many of them attending the event.

According to Yaw, Ayra Starr was in New York when Headies boss Ayo Animashaun invited her to attend and receive her award. However, the Mavin star refused.

Yaw explained that Animashaun offered to book the young singer a business class ticket to attend, but she insisted on a private jet or nothing.

It was disclosed that the organisers decided to announce Ayra Starr’s award on social media, but she went online to drag them while claiming they did it because she’s a woman.

Yaw went on to wonder if it was the Grammys that bought the flight tickets for all the Nigerian musicians who attended their 2024 award show. He said this while reiterating that these artistes should support their own.

In his words:

“Ayra Starr she dey New York, make she come Headies Award, Ayo say him go buy business class ticket for her make she come the show. She say if no be private jet, she no dey come. So dem come present her award online, she con come dey bash Headies say dem present her award online because she be woman.

You no go talk say dem say dem go pay your business class flight? How many people dey fly business class for this abroad? Okay you be superstar, we agree, no doubt. But at the same time if to say na your own thing… This Grammy wey all of them go, Na Grammy buy their flight ticket?”

Yaw’s explanation on Ayra Starr’s reason for not attending the Headies Award was met with interesting reactions from netizens. Read some of them below:
