Waje: Stop asking me how it feels like to be a single mother!

Fast-rising Nigerian musician, Waje, whose real name is Aituaje Iruobe, has asked media personalities to refrain from inquiring – from her – how it feels like raising a child alone.

Thirty eight-year-old Waje, who is famed for the hit song “Coco Baby” featuring Tanzania’s Diamond Platnumz, took to Instagram on Monday, October 22 to express her displeasure at some interview questions often posed to her.

“Stop asking me questions like: ‘How does it feel like to be a single mother, or a mother?’ ‘What are the challenges [you are facing] as an artist?’ My child is 19 [years old], not 2… I have forgotten [how single-parenting feels like!] Ask me about [my] music, and music, and more about music; and, add if I have eaten today…,” she wrote on the social media platform.
