Nigerian singer, Oyinkansola Sarah Aderibigbe, popularly known as Ayra Starr, has recounted how her secondary school math teacher predicted her success in the music industry.
She 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.
She said her math teacher encouraged her to share her videos online for people to see, and just as he predicted, years later, she was signed into Don Jazzy’s record label, Mavin.
“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 said.
