Why I Featured My Daughter In My New Music Video – Waje

Waje explained further that, “There’s nothing eloquent about it, it is just basically me sitting down and thinking if Johnny and I do this video together and they see Johnny as my love interest, the world will stone me because that is some cougar situation.

“That song reminds me of my daughter. So I felt basically, Johnny and her in the same age group. He is probably a few years older. So I thought it would make sense for her to be in the video.”

Revealing the reason why she has remained relevant in the music industry over the years, Waje said being uncomfortable with her present situation drives her.
