Tiwa added that the fast-rising diva, known for her showy outfits, has defied Nigerians' criticism of her provocative fashion by continuing to excel in the global music arena.

"I love Ayra [Starr]. I'm obsessed with her. She's amazing and genuine, too. It makes me emotional because when I started, I got criticised a lot for dressing too sexxy and my lyrics being too risky.
"So, seeing someone, Ayra now…If I see her wearing the short skirts, as they say, I'm like, 'Make it shorter.' And she looks amazing, she's extremely talented. Yeah, she's a star."
