From the first day, I’ve not seen one bad comment about “Rush” till now and it’s crazy.
Speaking about why she likes to sometimes wear her ‘ashawo’ clothes, Ayra Starr said:
In real life, I like to enter into two different energies. Sometimes I’m just like a guy, I want to wear boots today. And then sometimes, I’m wearing my skirt that’s just as tiny as a belt [laughs]. And sometimes, I’m not wearing clothes [laughs]. But I just like to expose myself to different things, I like to feel different things, and I put that in my music too.
