“Follow your own particular dreams. We are handed a life by peers, parents and society, you can do that or follow your own dreams. Life is short, be a dreamer but be a practical person” HUGH HEFNER.
From doing catering jobs to raise money for school fees and handout to teaching pupils in nursery school to raise money to take care of her mother, Waje never lost sight of her dream.
Born in Akure to an Igbo mother and Edo father .Just like every other talented musician, Waje started her career in the church and that earned her the scholarship that saw her through primary and secondary school.
With scholarship gone after secondary school, university education was a different story all together. With a mother and six younger ones to carter for, Waje saw herself through school with little money made from gigs as a member of Bethel Orchestra, a staff of Enugu State Tourism board and a caterer all at once. She never lost sight of her dream.
In 2005, the management of Dome Records saw the talent that is Waje and signed her. She hustled her way with the normal free shows and free voice over until she was featured on P Square’s massive hit “Do me” and the rest like they say is history.
Waje is a year older today and I’ll not like to bore you with details of things you can read elsewhere. But I can proudly say that I love Waje shamelessly and she’s a talented singer.
Good music does not need any sort of interpretation the same way a good voice does not require any sort of enhancement. It’s a pity that as a country we don’t really support talent. We constantly push hype/ mediocrity over talent and that is the only reason some people are referred to as “One hit wonder “. I agree that hype can take you somewhere but talent will take you everywhere.
If you listened to “Kolo” I would suggested that you also download and listen to “Ada”. Just in case you’ve heard both, I‘ve also attached the video for her new hit single “For a minute” specially for you all. Remember u saw it here first. Video is HOT!!!
Dear Waje, Happy birthday. I’ll personally do everything within my powers to support your music.
Believe me Words Aren’t Just Enough. Your number one fan, Noble chibuzor Igwe.
Please join me and the 360Fam in wishing Waje a happy birthday.
