Tems has praised Ayra Starr for her hard work and dedication to her craft while hinting at the possibility of working together on a music project someday.

The Grammy Award-winning artist was recently featured on NPR Music, where she performed songs from her debut album ‘Born in the Wild’.

During the show, the 29-year-old musician spoke highly of Ayra Starr, whose sophomore album “The Year I Turned 21” displaced Tems’ album from the number one spot on Apple Music’s chart of most listened to Albums in Nigeria. She described the 22-year-old Starr as an artist who reminds her of herself.

“I would like to give flowers to this young girl called Ayra Starr,” she said. “We met a few years ago and she just reminds me so much of myself. She is such a hardworking girl and she is doing the thing. She deserves some flowers.”

When asked about the possibility of a future collaboration with the Mavin artist, she responded, “Possibly.”

Ayra Starr, born Oyinkansola Aderibigbe, gained widespread attention after releasing her hit track ‘Bloody Samaritan’ in 2021. With numerous awards and accolades, Starr has quickly risen to become one of the continent’s leading female artists. She was among the Nigerian music stars nominated for the last Grammy Awards, earning a nod in the inaugural ‘Best African Music Performance’ category for her hit song ‘Rush’.

Tems, on the other hand, rose to fame in 2020 through her collaboration with Wizkid on the song ‘Essence’. She released her debut EP ‘For Broken Ears’ the same year. In February 2023, she won her first Grammy Award in the ‘Best Melodic Rap Performance’ category for her role in ‘Wait for U’, a 2022 hit song by Future featuring Drake.

It is pleasing to see the two musicians show mutual respect. Earlier this year, in March, Ayra Starr was asked whom she wanted to give flowers for International Women’s Day. She named three fellow artists — Tems, Tyla and Tiwa Savage. Should the two decide to collaborate on a track, it is sure to be a major hit and the music lovers worldwide would love to see that.
