Fast-rising singer, Ayra Starr bows to pressure as she tenders an apology while revealing her reason for shaking hands with the veteran juju singer, King Sunny Ade.
This came following a viral video from a recent event where the ‘Sabi Girl’ crooner casually walked up to King Sunny Ade for a handshake.
Ayra Starr, however, faced severe backlashes from social media users who termed her as an uncultured Nigerian lady and how her interaction with the veteran singer was rude.
Addressing the claims, Sabi Girl apologized for the disrespect while stating the reasons for her actions.
According to Ayra Starr, she did not recognize King Sunny Ade initially as a result of the lights at the event but returned to correct her wrongs after realizing her mistake.
In a post via the X platform, she wrote;
“😭😭 I’m so sorry , I had just walked in and all the lights and nerves didn’t let me see but i came back around to greet everyone properly, I have never been that girl to be disrespectful, I’m a proper Yoruba girlllll and the video didn’t start until after I’d greeted burna’s mom ! I’m very sorry to the legend, uncle and King Sunny Ade,” she wrote.
