She expressed her frustration, stating, “I will never be grateful for winning a category that wasn’t even deemed fit to be announced on stage! Best female artist is important; we all work hard. I’ve seen Tiwa record 4 hit songs in one night, Tems lives for music. We didn’t deserve such negligence! Nigeria, you didn’t raise me to settle for less.

Joey Akan also supported her on Twitter, stating, “No Nigerian female artist received recognition on the Headies 2023 stage, and Ayra Starr is right to voice her concerns publicly. I agree with her. They deserve better.
