Ayra Starr Advocates Against Diminishing Confidence in Black Girls

Nigerian songstress Ayra Starr has taken a bold stance against the cultural tendency to suppress confidence in young black girls, urging them to embrace their strength and individuality without reservation.

During a recent appearance on the Oui Oui Baguette show hosted by Sally, Ayra Starr delivered a powerful message aimed at empowering black women and girls. Emphasizing the significance of hard work and self-assurance, she urged them not to downplay their achievements or potential.

“In Nigeria, girls are often raised to be humble, but it’s time to challenge that narrative. We need to celebrate our accomplishments and not shy away from our confidence,” expressed the singer.

Rejecting the notion of “shakara” (excessive pride) as a deterrent to confidence, Ayra Starr emphasized the importance of allowing girls to express themselves fully without fear of judgment or criticism.

“Let’s refrain from stifling their confidence by labeling it as ‘too much.’ Instead, let’s encourage them to shine brightly and unapologetically,” she asserted.

In her impassioned plea, Ayra Starr encouraged black girls to unapologetically show up and stand out, embracing their innate brilliance and refusing to conform to outdated stereotypes.

“Black girls, it’s time to claim your space and let your light shine. Be proud of who you are and never apologize for being extraordinary,” she concluded, inspiring a new generation of confident and empowered young women.
