However, her moment of triumph was marred by the absence of an on-stage presentation for the award.

Taking to her Twitter account, Ayra Starr expressed her disappointment.

In her words;

“I will never be grateful for winning a category that wasn’t even deemed fit to be announced on stage! Best female artist na beans? We work hard, every single one of us! I’ve seen Tiwa record 4 hit songs in the same night, Tems breathes and lives for music, we didn’t deserve such nonchalance! Nigeria, you didn’t raise me to settle for less.”
