Waje sizzles in hot new photos; releases new singles

You have to respect the evolution of Waje as a musician. From her first popular single to Kolo, she has grown into her own, bringing out beautiful music with solid emotional depth and performing in show-stopping style.

Oko Mi is her freshest single and is a beautiful love song in Yoruba and English. Her other song 'I wish’ is the recently leaked single that has become popular overnight. It explores a woman whose heart has just been broken and is trying to let go. ‘I wish, I didn’t have a heart, Na only stone fit dey inside…..’ It’s a beautiful song. Looks like Waje is becoming our answer to true Naija soul music

Listen to both songs after the cut...

 

Oko mi


I wish




Waje who co hosted The Future Awards last weekend is performing at The Nigeria Entertainment Awards at New York tonight. She was also recently nominated in the Headies 2012 as best female vocalist. Happy Birthday Waje!!!

I like the sound of ‘I wish’….it kinda reminds me of Sean Paul & Sasha’s ‘Am still in love with you’ Boy….

The first picture runs me the wrong way. Waje is not light-skinned

Waje's voice is something else, i just luv listening 2 her songs ; 'for a minute', 'so inspired', 'one naira' with MI. She's just too gud.

U have a good voice but no hit song still,Why?

Anonymous said...

Waje we know u can sing but what can we remember u with?which song? One naira?that Mi's song.pls get a song that will be remembered not the backup u did with psquare or Mi. *Time waste.

Anonymous said...

Who is comparing waje with Adele? Very funny. Adele is a hit maker while waje is a confused mixed music maker. Next she will do highlife on azonto hahaha.

Anonymous said...

Abi?that's true o. She doesn't have a hit after 7years in d business. Lol oh I forgot she's still up n coming agbaya

Anonymous said...

It's true,waje u should work on getting a song exertions after will remember u by.not just a psquare backup or mi ft.

Anonymous said...

We have singers in this country,powerful singers so having a good voice is not all,work it baby. Shane ur haters by doing a hit song. We remember onyeka onwenu,Christy Essien of blessed memories with their hits,pls listen to this cos it's good criticism,else u'll be forgotten easily

Anonymous said...

U need a hit or hits like ur female counterparts. Kefee does her Thing even as a church girl,she is still The only female singer with the most hit songs like Branama,kokoroko,sapele water,Beautiful.
Tiwasavage is know for kele kele,love me,
omawunmi for if u ask me,bottom bele
,Kween for Jebele
,Asa Fire on the mountain,bibanke,Nneka etc. Learn from them

Lol at forgotten easily. NAija can talk . Forgotten like beauty queens after 1 yr.

Manny said...

Haters all over. You can see you are so few here. Waje is a multi-talented musician all over. The way it is going, this Okomi will be a hit. Shut up and talk true

Vic said...

Did you see her on ndani's sessions, this babe is on fire and who new she had major sex appeal. me loving her real good.

No 1 fan said...

I feel like shedding tears for Waje now, she is slowly growing to become Nigeria's biggest female artiste

Nana said...

There is so much depth in what she does. I am proud of Waje and for the first time I have so much respect for a Nigerian female artiste. well done diva

Bunmi K said...

She reminds me of Mary J Blige. Her music is deeply emotional> I love so much!

Alicia says... said...

You are obviously the bitter one. What's wrong with stating the obvious?? If your are obsessed with me, just say so and stop making unnecessary noise.

Anonymous said...

I've always liked and admired her. She's had it rough and that's what makes her music touching. As for D photos, nice one.

belinda said...

Wow females hate themselves thats why d guys will always do better. That first comment about her hit song was written by a fellow singer who knew pple will follow nd yab d poor girl nd na person wey she call friend. I was right der so I knw. She's great so pls comment on d song as dem ask u.

Anonymous said...

She hasn't around for 7yrs nd even if she has d fact dat u commented here means she can't be forgotten. Lol so u sat down and gave ur time to typing ur comment? Well done waje u 've succeeded in making dem remember u even down to ur yrs in industry. Foolish pple

Like 're u serious? Who is that person with a list. Last year channel o, So InspIred was nominated nd she was given an honorary award in d UK not only by Nigerians but an African organization for using her music to fight for women nd u Dare diss her. Tomorrow when God nor answer ur prayer u go say na d winch for ur village when u Sef dey winch person wey try e best. Na wa oh

Hauteperson said...

Na wah for haters o! If e easy make una too sing naau abi......Majority of pple making abusive comments here are stupid low lives who have nothing major to show in their various sectors.....it's very ok to criticize but do so with the right words....If you have any beef with these people why not go on the FB page and send them an inbox message rather than coming here to show how loosed mouthed you are and my darling Linda make u post my comment oh.....ehen

Anonymous said...

Everyone has their moments... Robin Thick made music for over 10 years before singing his hit song! From the sound of what we are hearing it seems Waje's rise to success will not take that long... So, support the beautiful music you have heard, and stop bashing a woman who is working hard to achieve her goals

I see them dem all said...

All these people talking sh*t though ahn ann! Why do i feel like these bad comments were deliberate... hmmm na wa o! I dey see all of una... well done

Waje, you dont know me but know that there are good people right behind you. God bless you for I wish... I love that song and I can relate!

Anonymous said...

I love both songs. My fav is Oko Mi... though I wish reminds me of a difficult time, its good to know someone can put the way i felt in my heart into music... God Bless Waje

Godwin said...

I think these songs show that the babe has been working hard... All i see on my timeline is Waje this or Waje that. Her performance at NEA, her new single, her Ndani rendition of I wish... I hope she keeps it up sha

Banke said...

michael said...

Now my question...why will some1 who is a terry g fan or a Vico fan come here and make a comment.
Dis is a song for peeps who appreciate good music and peeps who hv opened their hearts to embrace good music.Waje is a Versatile artist who has in her career not made a wack song or even delivered a wack hook. So I wld advise any1 hating to pls go and get both a life and a job. U need to see her profile be4 talkin.

Anonymous said...

OK so all i have to say is this,first waje is an artist whose lyrics has nothing to do with sex or winning or any other trash that make the African lady look like trash,i'm proud to be Nigerian just cos she is,good music is unique in the Nigerian industry WAJE keep ud the good work

Anonymous said...

waje is really picking up so much steam i luv that she is doing that ,it only proves that there is hope for the music industry,not all this take banana songs we here all over the radio and the whine ur waist songs good music is kinda hard for the Nigerian ear ...im proud of u waje

Anonymous said...

Waje please listen to your critics,they are saying the truth. Even Chidinma of project fame has 2 hits already.pls do something.don't waste ur time defending or abusing your fans/critics here
