I’m not aware of rivalry between Asake, Seyi Vibez – Ayra Starr

Afrobeats artist Ayra Starr has stated that she is unaware of any rivalry between her peers, Asake and Seyi Vibez.

Although there hasn’t been any public conflict between Asake and Seyi Vibez, tensions have existed among their respective fan bases, particularly on social media.

During a recent interview with The Beat FM Lagos, Ayra Starr was questioned about whether her choice to collaborate with both artists on her second album, ‘The Year I Turned 21,’ was deliberate due to their perceived rivalry. She denied having any knowledge of such rivalry.

According to her, she decided to work with them because she loves their sonic prowess.

She said, “I didn’t put Asake and Seyi Vibez on my album because of their rivalry. I didn’t know about the rivalry between Asake and Seyi Vibez. I just love both of them as artists.

“I’m really big on sonics; what would sound good sonically. My team is always thinking of the business side but I’m just thinking of who would be sonically compatible with me. And I’ve been listening to Seyi Vibez’s ‘Different Pattern’ for a very long time. So I decided to work with him. When I sent the record to him, he sent his verse almost immediately. They were very quick with it. Asake, too, he sent me his verse in three days.”
