Nigerian songstress, Waje has revealed how her daughter once saw her in a drunken state — and the experience changed her lifestyle choices.
The ‘Coco baby’ crooner made this revelation in a chat with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Rubbin Minds.
Waje recounted how she took one drink too much after attending an event and ended up bumping into her daughter, Emerald Iruobe, when she opened the door for her at home.
“In my own life, for a long time, whomever I was in a relationship with was not allowed to come to my house. You have to set boundaries. Parenting is sacred. Your children don’t do what you tell them but what they see,” she said.
“Parenting is different for single mums than single dads in the industry. There are not a lot of single dads who have their kids living with them. There’s a huge difference there. My child is there 2-4-7.
“The one time my daughter saw me drunk was the reason I checked myself. It wasn’t a great sight. It was in 2013 when I got home after an event. You know how you do champaign here, one glass there.
“My daughter was the one who opened the door when I got home. That is not somewhere any parent should be.”
