Took exactly three days for me to process the information and from that moment of acceptance grief has consumed my entire world😭 Everyone is asking me to move on but HOW?? Your death has made our daughter fatherless and your Kate” a widow in my 20s💔

I DO NOT WISH WHAT I AM CURRENTLY GOING THROUGH ON ANYONE. Death is inevitable yet the only occurrence we are never prepared for.

Regardless of all the pains you went through in the last days of your life, you never gave up hope! You kept on saying “My Kate Don’t Worry! I’m Going To Beat Cancer And Be Here For Our Lila’s 18th Birthday & Graduation” Oh Death How Could You??? 💔😭

Flash Backs, Memories & Our Beautiful Daughter is all I have left of you.
Bitterness has consumed my heart.
HOW DO I MOVE ON WITH LIFE❔
YOU WERE MY ONLY TRUE BACKBONE AND CONFIDANT IN EVERYTHING 😭😭
YOU LOVED & ADORED ME TILL THE VERY END🔗❤️💔😭
I WILL NEVER FORGET!
I WILL NEVER LET GO!!
I WILL CHERISH THEM FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE ♾️💐🕊️🤲🏾!!!
(Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)”

She joins fellow Nigerian Tiwa Savage, who is the only other African artist to be both the Spotify EQUAL Africa and Global artist.

Monica Kemoli-Savanne, Spotify’s Senior Artist & Label Partnerships Manager, Sub-Saharan Africa says, “Our commitment at Spotify is to support and empower women in the music industry, helping to create a more level playing field. Seeing artists like Ayra Starr come from the continent to gain global recognition serves as a true testament that Africa is full of talent, all that is needed is a platform. It has been a great journey to witness the growth of female artists who are also inspiring generations to come, which also speaks to our commitment to equally support female artists.”

Spotify hosted 15 EQUAL activations and over 14.8 million artist discoveries stemmed from EQUAL playlists, and EQUAL artists received 11,800 editorial playlist adds, all in 2023, further demonstrating the program’s impact and reach.

Ayra Starr whose February release Commas already has over 35 million streams on Spotify, spoke on her expressive musical style that has helped her craft a niche in the music industry, and what it means to her being selected as Spotify’s EQUAL artist.

Ayra Starr to delve deeper into her music and creative journey:

How is the Spotify EQUAL program significant, from your perspective?

There are so many women in music today, behind the scenes, in front of the camera, musicians, sound engineers, all these women working hard and Spotify EQUAL is doing a great job in highlighting all their hard work.

What does this mean to you as a person, being Spotify’s EQUAL artist for the month both from an African and Global perspective?

It means everything to me because I am a girl and I have to support my gender and level the playing field.

To someone who has never heard your music, how would you describe the sound, tone, and style?

I would describe my sound as highly vibrational, eccentric, unique, and beautiful.

Are we expecting any music from you anytime soon?

Yes. I have a new single with Seyi Vibes called ‘Bad Vibes’ and I can’t wait for you guys to hear it. It’s amazing and it’s one of those songs that makes you feel good. The best part about it is that it is not just a regular Afrobeat record, it’s like genres intertwined.
