Popular Nigerian media personality, Steve Onu best known as YAW has heavily criticized musician, Ayra Starr for refusing to attend the Headies award, yet she attended the Grammys award.

YAW's statement comes after the Grammys award which no Nigerian won. He called out Ayra Starr for not accepting the offer of a business flight for the Headies award, yet she bashed the organizers of the awards and accused them of putting her award on social media because she is a woman.

He said; “Ayra Starr she dey New York, make she come Headies Award, Ayo say him go buy business class ticket for her make she come the show. She say if no be private jet, she no dey come. So dem come present her award online, she con come dey bash Headies say dem present her award online because she be woman. You no go talk say dem say dem go pay your business class flight? How many people dey fly business class for this abroad? Okay you be superstar, we agree, no doubt. But at the same time if to say na your own thing… This Grammy wey all of them go, Na Grammy buy their flight. “

He further emphasized on his point by wondering if the Nigerian artistes flights for the Grammys award were being catered for by the organizers of Grammys. He then advised Nigerians to support their own and support anything from Africa as it would lead to growth.
