When Ayra starr said “me no get the time for the hate and the bad energy” in her hit song ‘Rush’, she wasn’t joking.
Despite the ocean of criticism directed at singer Ayra Starr for her wardrobe choice for the Meta concert, the singer has refused to drown. She has responded to the backlash with an interesting apology to her fans.
The day started with the rising Mavins musician getting criticised for performing in a provocative dress to the concert, which held in Lagos on the 24th of November 2022.
With only a few people backing the singer’s outfit, majority of social media users knocked the singer for it. Starr wore a short skirt, a small, revealing top, and her signature high boots.
The outfit has sparked outrage on social media, with many complaining it barely covered her body.

Contrary to many people’s opinion, Martins defended Ayra saying: “You no Kuku Sabi anything….and how is this an indecent dressing…it’s like telling cardi and Nicky they shud dress well…this is music bro being sexy comes with it dumb [sic]”
Obviously irritated, Damilola said:“what rubbish dress is this…. even ur senior ladies in the industry never dress this bad…. Omoh maybe when you get more mature sha [sic]”

Following the outrage online, the artist has released a voice recording on Twitter. In the recording captioned “I apologise,” she says, “oh nooo, oh, wow, I’d do it again, I’d never wear short skirts again [laughs].”
She followed up with a snippet of her hit song ‘Rush’ singing: “me no get the time for the hate and the bad energy got my mind on my money, make e dance like Poco Lee, steady green like broccoli.”
The celestial being, as she calls herself, then caps it up by asking that fans go and stream Mavin’s recent release, ‘Won Da Mo.’
As this is not the first time the 20-year-old artist has been under fire for her signature dressing style.
In August 2022, the singer was criticised for her choice of clothes, with people asking if she had any decent clothes.
It is evident that fans should expect more mini skirts from the celebrity, given that it appears to be her signature style.
