“Female artistes are not held to same standards as male” – Ayra Starr speaks
Popular songster, Ayra Starr has opined that female performers are not usually held to the same standards as their male colleagues.
She remarked on how grateful she is for her senior female colleagues who have paved the way for budding female singer like herself, however, female and male performers are not treated equally.
Ayra Starr said:
“I am grateful to the women who came before me, who paved the way. Because of them, I am not dealing with so much. However, there is still that issue of female artistes being scrutinised more than their male colleagues. Female artistes are not held to the same standards as the males.”
She also spoke on her recently released hit single, “Sability” which has been getting glowing reviews from appreciative fans.“Of course, I am excited. I wanted people to feel good and be happy while listening to the song. I am happy it’s doing that and even more.
