Young and talented act, Ayra Starr has described her record label boss, Don Jazzy, as a genius for taking his entertainment business to a global level from the scratch.

Ayra Starr, signed to Mavin Records, revealed that she is privilege to be tapping from the wealth of knowledge of Don Jazzy. Speaking in a recent chat with Punch, she said;

“Don Jazzy is a genius, considering what he has done with his career, which he started from the scratch.

Being able to constantly drink from his unending well of knowledge is a huge privilege.”

Ayra Starr, real name Oyinkansola Aderibigbe, divulged she grew up in a family that loved music. Disusing how her childhood influenced her music, she stated;

“I grew up in a family where everyone loved music. While growing up, we were not really allowed to go out to play with friends regularly. Instead, we often played music games.

We would be given words and asked to write songs about them, and even come up with a choreography routine, which would be performed before the whole family with incentives attached. All that largely influenced me, and I still carry some of the lessons from those moments with me.”

Speaking on her hit song, ‘Bloody Samaritan,’ Ayra Starr said she didn’t expect the music to be as big as it is.

“I would not say I was (shocked) because I knew I made a song people would be able to relate with. However, I had no idea it would go this viral. I did not sit down to think about the dance that came with the song.

I was just having fun while on set and I posted the video I made. Before I knew it, it had turned into a full blown challenge with people from different parts of the world participating in it.”
