Singer Ayra Starr has expressed her grievance over the failure of the Headies’ organisers to announce the award for Best Female Artiste which she won on Sunday night.

The 21-year-old took to X (formerly Twitter) on Monday, stating that she alongside all other female artistes who were nominated did not deserve the “nonchalance”.

“I will never be grateful for winning a category that wasn’t even deemed fit to be announced on stage! Best female artist na beans? We work hard, every single one of us! I’ve seen Tiwa record 4 hit songs in the same night, Tems breaths and lives for music, we didn’t deserve such nonchalance! Nigeria, you didn’t raise me to settle for less,” the ‘Rush’ singer wrote.
