Nigerian singer, Oyinkansola Sarah Aderibigbe, known professionally as Ayra Starr, has called out Air France for allegedly being racist towards her.
She stated this in an audio rant posted on her verified Twitter page.
Starr said; “Air France, it has almost been two months now that my box is not here. My laptop is inside, my new wig is also inside. I said I wouldn’t be angry again but you people! Please just return my box, I’m tired.
“I need to make music with my laptop. I don’t know how to use another thing to make music except with my laptop. I haven’t been able to record myself in two months. Do you know how hard and annoying that is?
“Please…okay, I forgive you. Just return my box, these excuses aren’t working again, return my box, please. Please tag Air France
“No one should comment that this is not racism, you don’t know the full story. Keep shut and tag them. Thank you very much” she added.
In another tweet, she wrote “Air France this is starting to smell like racism, it’s been two months already! Please return my box to me !!! My laptop is in there, my music is in there, give me my box, I’m tired.
Another Twitter page named SosoTheWanderer replied saying “Air France? Oh, girl, it’s definitely racism. On my flight from the U.S. to Paris, they treated us very well.
“Then when it was time to go from Paris to Nigeria, they were crazy rude. Sprayed disinfectant on us while we were seated, one person had an asthma attack. A whole mess”.
