Nigerian songstress, Waje has opened up on a part of a childhood people hardly know about. The talented singer made this known in an Instagram live chat with Bouqui.
The ‘Omini Knowest’ singer said her father didn’t really get married to her mother.
According to her::”I won’t tell you I had a fun childhood, I would tell you that .Because of the kind of person my mom is, I grew up in an environment where my immediate family and extended family were very close.
I was born in Ogun State at that time, my mother was working in Akure.My parents never really got married, but they were together for a while. For some reason I don’t really know why my father never really married her. They were basically living together and he would say we would go and see your people this year and he just kept saying it until he had all of us”.
Speaking further, the award winning vocalist added that her father’s parents didn’t really support the union between his parents.
“He came from a family where she wasn’t really welcomed especially by my father’s mom. They had left that stage of ‘we are going to see your family’ to fighting a lot.I cannot tell you I remember fun memories of both of them. The memories I remember are that of my mom taking us to the cinema.
I think that’s when I started realizing that I had a gift, not necessarily a gift then. But I realized I loved music.Though I have mended my relationship with my dad, but as at then, If my memory serves me right, he wasn’t exactly a honest man. Because of that, we used to have very weird visitors.Like people he has duped or business has gone bad”, she said.
