The Nigerian singer Ayra Starr revealed the uplifting remarks Barbadian superstar Rihanna gave her during their meeting.

Rihanna declared to Ayra Starr that she could rule the music business for both sexes.

Rihanna said her voice can enthrall audiences of all genders, according to Ayra Starr.


Speaking with Billboard, Ayra Starr remembered their meeting at the Authentic Woman event in the UK.


The ‘Rush’ crooner said: ”We [Rihanna and I] got to hang out after the event. Just spending time with my idol, the person that inspired me to do all of this, was the most amazing thing. She gave me so many pointers and advice.

“I love my voice, but I know I have a very deep voice like, ‘Is that a man?! Is that a boy?!’ Rihanna was like, ‘You have the type of voice that can take over the males and take over the girls. You are here to take over both sides of the industry.’

“And I was like, ‘You think so?’ She’s like, ‘Yes! Yes!’ I was like, ‘Thank you so much!’ She was like, ‘That’s your superpower.’ I was like, ‘I never thought of it like that. Thank you.’ She just put everything into perspective for me.”
