Singer Waje features on the cover of Glazia Magazine’s latest edition, themed the Nature Issue. In a chat with Omawumi Ogbe, the singer talks about body positivity, life, new music, new direction and more. Read excerpts from her interview below:
On what nature means to her: Nature to me is life because the creation can’t even be described without nature… The Garden of Eden…you know what I mean? There is so much that the greenery and plants give to us that keep our survival and there are so many things that keep us going and inspire who we are just by being surrounded by nature. Nature is literarily our existence. Nature is our existence that’s how I will put it.
On nature inspiring her music: You know there was a time in my life where I sort of got a writer’s block. I couldn’t really do much and a friend of mine told me to try writing when I have long trips on the plane and strangely enough, it was great. It was a day time flight, I was looking outside, the light was coming in through my windows, and I was seeing the clouds and their different shapes.
You know when you look at the clouds, you suddenly start forming images and it’s so funny, there was one that looked like three people. There, I got the song I wanted to write which is in my up and coming EP. So yeah, it does inspire me.
