Waje is the cover star for Guardian Life and in a very interesting chat talks about her music career, being a coach on The Voice Nigeria and more.
Read excerpts from the interview and checkout her fashion spread below:
Was music always in the cards for you? Did you have any other career planned?
For me, music was always somehow part of the plan. When I was at school, I was on scholarship because I could sing, not because I was an A grade student or anything, even though say I de try. So somehow, music has also opened doors for me, I guess it was just natural. I had people in my life like Chris Madubuko, who was my mentor; he guided me to making the right decisions before music became a career.
Before my music life, my life was pretty much confused in the sense that I really didn’t know where to place myself. I had done quite a number of things, I had worked for the tourist board in Enugu and I didn’t last up to a year there.
At some point I started making chin chin with my friend, we were doing that to survive but crazy enough our chin chin was the best in Onitsha at the time. We used to sell a really small container for N600 and in two days we might finish frying 50 kilos of chin chin, just the two of us.
