Ayra Starr, a Nigerian musician, has revealed that her secondary school math instructor predicted that her record label, Mavin, would sign her.

The singer, whose true name is Oyinkansola Sarah Aderibigbe, revealed this fact on a recent edition of “Afrobeats Intelligence” with Joey Akan.

According to Ayra Starr, her math teacher recognized her talent and even predicted the day Mavin would sign her.

She claimed that despite being just 14 years old, his belief in her motivated her to join the choir and improve her voice.

“Female artistes are not held to same standards as male”– Ayra Starr speaks

The teacher encouraged AYra to put her films online for others to watch.

Just as Don Jazzy had prophesied, she was signed to his musical label.

In her words;

“I have a teacher that literally inspired me. He said I was going to be signed to Mavin. It’s crazy. I was 14 then, and he said, ‘Mavin is going to sign you. Start making videos.’ He would just inspire me. He was even Muslim, but he would tell me to go to church and join the choir. He was my math teacher.”
