It goes beyond the music for an artist like our SCHICK woman, Waje. She was officially introduced to the music scene with a feature on P-Square’s Do Me in 2007 and subsequently she became known for her strong vocals in many notable tunes such as M.I’s One Naira, Left For Good featuring Patoranking, Coco Baby featuring Diamond and her own signature tune, and the world knew there was more to the music star. Waje, born Aituaje Aina Vivian Ebele Iruobe, is a Nigerian singer whose unique vocals have been around for while. WAJE is an acronym for “Words aren’t just enough”
Besides her music, the talented singer and proud single mother is also an active member of One.org, an international non-profit organisation dedicated to fighting extreme poverty and raising public awareness, particularly in Africa. She is the recipient of many awards and nominations and we saw Waje transform from a musician to a mentor, as she was one of the judges on the music show, The Voice Nigeria. Waje talks about the ways in which the show “validated her as an artist”, the show not only gave her the opportunity to share her musical knowledge and experience but also allowed her to prove herself as her mentee Arese won the first The Voice Nigeria competition.
If you’ve never seen the star perform live, it’s strongly recommended you catch one of her shows, it’ll be worth every Kobo spent!
