Leading Afrobeats Diva, Ayra Starr, is set to rock fans in the United Kingdom (UK) later this week as she embarks on her ‘World Tour.’

She is billed to perform in Manchester, Birmingham, and London, starting November 10 to 13, 2023, her record label, Mavin Records, announced on Saturday.

Dubbed “21: The World Tour”, Ayra Starr will be on stage alongside Mavin Record’s new signee, Lifestyle Teddy, a rapper and writer described as talented and multi-dimensional.

Videos of the Sability composer performing in Madrid, Spain, were circulated on Monday, attracting mixed remarks from followers of the lively singer. Patrons believe her upcoming event in the UK will be no exception, as she has always given her audience their money’s worth.

Nigerian singer-songwriter Olamide recently posted on his X (Twitter) describing the 21-year-old as the “best artiste this generation has ever seen.”

Organizers of the upcoming concert say Ayra Starr is “impossible to ignore.” Her new single Rhythm & Blues, released early in September, has been endorsed worldwide and continues to attract positive reviews from listeners.

Born in Benin Republic, the 21-year-old was raised between the beach city of Cotonou and the cultural hub of Lagos, Nigeria. This mix of cultures is said to have inspired her global approach to music, art, and life.  

Ayra, who describes her sound as Afrosoul, has always looked up to A-list performers including Angelique Kidjo, and What’s Your Name composer, Rihanna.

Apart from Rush, her hit song Sability released early this year, attracted millions of streams and topped charts in Nigeria. She has been nominated for the 2023 Billboard Music Award with other competitors, including Rema and Cameroonian-American singer, Labianca.

The vibrant talent announced her presence on the music scene in January 2021 and has since captured the hearts of many music enthusiasts.  Her debut album, 19 & Dangerous, received about 125 million plays on Audiomack alone.

Staunch followers of the rising star would be looking forward to a memorable and exciting moment when she grabs the mic on stage this weekend to do what has won her all the accolades so far.
