Despite worldwide fame achieved thanks to the song "Djadja," which gathered almost a billion views on YouTube, and tickets for her concerts in Paris last year sold out in 15 minutes, her work has caused dissatisfaction among far-right circles.

Critics claim that her music, mixing French, Afrobeats, and Caribbean currents, is not "truly French."

In response, law enforcement agencies have begun an investigation into racism, and the Minister of Culture, Rachida Dati, has openly condemned the incident as a manifestation of racism.

Aya grew up in the suburbs of Paris, where the Games will take place. She has significant support from fans around the world and recognition from music critics, considering her the artist with the largest reach in French history.

Aya Nakamura: Facts from Life

Aya Nakamura was born in 1995 in Bamako, Mali, and then moved to France at an early age and grew up in the Parisian suburb of Aulnay-sous-Bois.

She began her music career in 2014, releasing several independent works before signing with a major label and releasing her debut album "Journal intime" in 2017.

Her unique musical style combines elements of R&B, pop music, and Afrobeats, which helped her gain international recognition.

Her second album, "Nakamura," released in 2018, became an international hit, thanks to songs like "Djadja" and "Pookie." "Djadja" was particularly popular, gathering hundreds of millions of views on YouTube and going platinum in several countries.

This success allowed Nakamura to perform at major music festivals and receive many awards, including for the best international album.

Despite her achievements, Nakamura faced racist and sexist attacks on social networks but continued to speak out against discrimination and support minority communities.

Her creativity and active social position have made her one of the most influential figures in contemporary French music.

It was previously reported that at the presentation of her upcoming exhibition at the elegant London hotel The Dorchester, Naomi Campbell made an indelible impression, appearing in a stylish ensemble of an elegant coat and wide trousers, carefully selected for her by V&A curator Sonnet Stanfill.
