Ayra Starr, a Nigerian musician, said in a recent TikTok video that she was disciplined by female teachers in high school who believed she would never amount to anything.

The event happened after she painted one of her fingernails pink, which prompted the teachers to surround her, scold her, and criticize her.

Despite being physically abused and reprimanded, Ayra Starr kept her fortitude and refused to let the event discourage her from pursuing her aspirations. She recalls remaining certain that she would overcome the setback and eventually triumph.

Captioning the TikTok video, she wrote, “I remember when all my female teachers gathered and knelt me down to tell me I’ll never be anything in life just because I painted one fingernail pink, but even back then with the tears in my eyes, I always knew was the shit. The beating I’ve gotten in this life just for having a mind of my own”

The child recently stated that when she was 14 years old, her mathematics teacher foretold her future in music.

She mentioned it on an episode of ‘Afrobeats Intelligence’ with Joey Akan, saying the teacher, who was Muslim, sensed something special in the singer’s inquisitive character and love of music.

According to Ayra Starr, the teacher inspired her to join the choir and learn to sing more. He encouraged her to create and share videos online and expressly stated that she would be signed to Mavin, which she is already signed to.
