The Nigerian entertainment industry is full of catfights and many of the practitioners in the sector have openly accused their colleagues of being envious. However, there are some friendships that stand out in the industry and the one between singers, Waje and Omawumi, is one of them. They attend events together and their social media pages are also full of both of them engaged in different activities.
In a chat with Sunday Scoop, Waje revealed the secret of her friendship with Omawumi.
“When you meet someone who you shares the same tastes with and reasons alike with you, then you have every reason to be close to the person. We have both been through a lot together and she has proved to be a true friend time and again. Apart from music, we do a lot of things together and we understand each other so well. She is someone I can call a true friend. I actually have a media company that is into movies, and it is in partnership with her. You will hear more about it as time goes by,” she said. Commenting on the trend of artistes making songs without edifying lyrics, Waje said,
“People are inspired by different things. You don’t have control over another person’s creative process. Meanwhile, this phenomenon is not peculiar to Nigeria; music is changing all over the world. However, there will always be people of like minds and when all of you speak in one voice, it is easier to effect change. There are a lot of women that create music that is impactful and drives a certain narrative into the new Nigeria that we are trying to build.”
