Ayra Starr, a famous singer, claimed that she always imagined herself as a teenage popstar, which helps to explain why she still dresses the way she does.
The 20-year-old Nigerian popstar explained in a recent interview with Guap Magazibe that one of the reasons she wears the way she does is so she can empower young people to feel powerful when they see her.
In response to a question about whether she considers herself an ambassador for Gen-Z Afrobeats, Ayra Starr said she does because of what she accomplishes with her music.
“I don’t know where it comes from but I feel like I have this responsibility to kind of show my generation what we can be and what we can do and I think I’m doing that through my music.
“I’ve always wanted to be a teenage popstar because I never saw that growing up and all the teenage pop stars I saw were white – there were no black teenage pop stars. I remember being like ‘I want to be a teenage popstar, I want my younger sister and her friends to be able to watch my videos and say I want to be that’ That’s why I still do things like wear pink, because I want girls to be able to feel powerful when they see me.
“I feel like I have a responsibility to do that for my generation and the generation that’s coming. I want to inspire people.”
