Speaking during the recent edition of ‘Afrobeats Intelligence’ with Joey Akan, Ayra Starr noted that her mathematics teacher believed in her talent, and even predicted that Mavin Records would sign her.
The singer mentioned that she was only 14 years old at the time, and that he also motivated her to join the choir and improve her singing.
Ayra further mentioned that her math teacher encouraged her to share her videos online for people to see.
However, just as he predicted, years later, she was signed into Don Jazzy’s record label, Mavin Records.
“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,” she added.
