She was asked about releasing an album in the video clip below and she responded angrily that she is tired of pushing money towards her music career. “ Maybe it’s fair to give it a rest and try other things for now. But I can’t have released an album after everyone have been shouting that ‘Waje your last album was years ago, we need a new album, when are you going to release an album’. All those people that are shouting where are they? Where are those people? …… That’s what I am saying I don’t have any money, let me speak it in pidgin, I no get money for publicity, I am not willing … Emerald’s school fees is there, there are things, I have 10 things in front of me, every single time, it’s been my music taking all the money from me” she said on a recorded video.
Waje is a good singer, she’s released many good songs that fans fell in love with and she has a beautiful voice. Sadly, Nigeria music industry cost a lot. Promoter, marketer, Radio stations and television stations charge a lot before they help musicians to get a show. Waje said she’s tired of all the spending and she is ready to quite music.
