Superstar Nigerian singer/songwriter, Oyinkansola Aderibigbe, aka Ayra Starr, has disclosed how she used to model before she got signed in to MAVINS records by Don Jazzy.
In a chat with Hip TV on Friday, the singer said despite her reluctance to showcase her talent, her belief in God gave her music career wide publicity.
She added that a few minutes after she posted a freestyle video, Don Jazzy, the Mavin Records boss, reached out to her via Instagram’s direct message.
“I just allowed God to manifest his grace through me. I use to model because I had to make little money for school but I always knew music was going to come,” she said.
“The way music manifested, the way it came into my life was like if I had not believed in God, it wouldn’t have happened. I just posted a cover on Instagram that day but I didn’t want to post it.
“I was like it’s too ugly, it’s too emotional, I shouldn’t post it and something kept telling me not to post it, but I posted it.
“It was not up to an hour, my record label boss saw the video and sent me a message like oh come to the studio – and here I am today.”
