The two indeed couldn’t wait for the Usher and Alicia Keys’ show at the Super Bowl halftime. In one of her stories, A’ja waits for Usher to perform and says, “Glad that part is over, they’re just opening it for Usher, they didn’t lie.” 

In another one, A’ja panned her cam showing the Allegiant Stadium and wrote, “Hooray football,” further in another, she is munching on a chicken wing bite inside the stadium like a child feeling happy on a day out.

However, the celebratory vibe had already started for A’ja as she recently attended the Super Bowl party presented by GQ Sports and FARFETCH at the Nomad Library Restaurant at Park MGM. Many NFL stars graced the dance floor as Travis Scott navigated the party.

Coming back to A’ja being at the Super Bowl, in her recent interview with Forbes she talks about having a busy month this one. She says, “Oh my gosh! My next couple of weeks looks hectic, but a lot of fun. I’m going to be everywhere and anywhere. I definitely will be at the Super Bowl and also starting my book tour.”

“I’m ready [for the Super Bowl]. I’m excited. I think that’s the beautiful thing about Vegas — you can still take a break from it, but then also still be in the mix. I try to find that perfect balance, so I don’t get bored of it. I can’t even imagine what Super Bowl is about to be,” she adds.
