Aina Vivian Iruobe, aka Waje is one of the most gifted singers in Nigeria and she has indeed grown in the music industry. In a recent interview with Guardian Woman, the Nigerian singer said;
“I became a mother at a very young age. It was not something I prepared for. I had to learn on the job,” she tells Guardian Woman. Learning in such situation entails making decisions. There were certain things I had to stop doing.”
As a single mother, she is determined to give her daughter the best. She confesses that being a mother has impacted positively on her music, especially in terms of the values she incorporates into her songs.
“There are songs I would really want to sing. But I would not do those songs because if as a listener, I may not be comfortable with my daughter singing that sort of song, why should I go ahead and sing them?” Waje added.
She insists that the need to maintain a balance between her daughter growing up in a good environment and being herself and maintaining her career is important to her.
