In an entertainment industry that is filled with enmity, competition and extreme rivalry, two singers, Waje and Omawumi have remained good friends and their story is worth telling.
Having witnessed consistent beef between top artistes, Yemi Alade and Tiwa Savage, it is necessary to find out the secret to the friendship between the former two in the midst of industry drama.
Speaking on her friendship with Omawumi, Waje told Punch Newspaper, “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 went further to talk about musicians who put out songs with uninspiring content. “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.”
