How Bono inspired Waje not to quit music


Nigerian songstress, Aituaje Iruobe, popularly known as Waje, has declared that she would no longer be quitting music after Irish rock star, U2, told her he liked her last album, Red Velvet.

The sonorous singer made this  known via her  InstaStories on Tuesday.

“Bono sees my album and says ”Waje I judge a book by its cover so you got this right! Then gives me some secret tips. So seems like this gurl won’t quit,” she wrote.

Recall that weeks ago, the singer revealed that the music business is draining her resources and she is frustrated.

She made this known in an emotional interview posted on her YouTube account.

In the 12 minute clip that was uploaded on her Youtube page over the weekend, Waje in an emotional outburst lamented about the state of the music industry and the reception of fans towards her music.

In the touching video, Waje is seen on a bed with her hair undone and no form of makeup worn as she flips through her phone soaking in all that was been said about her music and the poor reception of the fans.

“She said:”May be its fair to give it a rest. All the people that were shouting ‘Waje your last album was eight years ago, where are they now’?

“I know how much time and effort has gone into this particular album… I’m at that point where I’m just… maybe it is time to just bow out”.
