Nigerian singer Ayra Starr has recalled how her secondary school math teacher foresaw that her record company, Mavin, would sign her.
This information was disclosed by the singer, whose real name is Oyinkansola Sarah Aderibigbe, during a recent episode of “Afrobeats Intelligence” with Joey Akan.
Ayra Starr revealed that her math teacher saw her potential and even foresaw the day when Mavin would sign her.
She claimed that even though she was only 14 years old, she was inspired to join the choir and get better at singing because he had faith in her.
AYra received encouragement from the teacher to post her videos for others to view online.
She was signed to Don Jazzy’s record label, just as he had predicted.
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.”
