Nigerian singer and Grammy Award nominee Ayra Starr has revealed the support of Chris Brown for African artists.

She expressed her excitement about being invited to join Chris Brown as a special guest on his “11:11” tour in the United States and Canada, which she found out about during Grammy week.

Speaking in a recent interview with Kiss FM, UK, the singer said, “I first heard about it [my tour with Chris Brown] during the Grammy week. I was super excited. No, I didn’t cry. I would probably cry during my first performance at the tour when I see everybody [laughs].

“Chris Brown has been a fan of African music for a long time. He has been very supportive. He has always been supporting the culture and it is really beautiful to see.

“It is exciting to see African music get recognised globally. It has been a long time coming. African music has been popping. African music has been doing it in Africa. Actually, Afrobeats has always been the best genre in the world.”
