Ayra during interview

Speaking first about the performing and touring part of her job, Ayra Starr said:

AYRA STARR: I learned a lot of patience. I learned a lot of work goes into this, especially for stage. It's a whole different ball game. You can make music in the studio, but on stage, when people are buying tickets to see you, you have to give them a show. And me I feel like I owe my fans like that. I'm such a perfomer, and I just want to give them the best. So even when I'm not on my 100 or I'm feeling like tired or anything, people paid to come to this show. Sometimes I will see people packed outside and I'm just like "they're really here for me? Wow!" I opened to Koffee the first year I released my EP. And I understood that it was for her, that I was just opening for her. But, this one, people came for me. And I was just like wow, that's crazy.

Speaking about her biggest fear that comes from doing her job, Ayra Starr revealed saying:

AYRA STARR: People throwing things on stage, that is one of my fears. It's crazy. It's disrespectful. If somebody does that to me, I know I'm going to find that person. I'm going to throw it back from stage. But, I don't think it's going to happen. That is my biggest fear.
