“Omawumi is engaged”, the mother of one said, adding that people “should try not to listen to gossip”.

News of a secret wedding in Warri, had gone viral several weeks back.

Omawumi’s BFF, Waje, a few other friends and family members were also rumoured to have attended the ceremony, which allegedly coincided with the singer’s late Dad’s 10th year memorial.

However, Omawumi stated categorically that “I’m engaged. I’m not married yet”.

This time around, the singer says she won’t make her wedding plans public.

“Onye” Is A Funny Video About Infidelity, Says Soul Singer, Waje

WajeOne of Nigeria’s top female singers, Waje, has said that her latest music video “Onye” was produced to make people laugh, rather than take too seriously, its central theme- infidelity.

“It’s a serious topic really, when you talk about infidelity and all of that, but I just wanted to have fun,” she said on Sunrise, on Saturday.

She explained that she wanted people to acknowledge that “infidelity is commonplace in society” but to also make fun of it.

“Life is really about fun and enjoying yourself. So, I wanted a funny video that everybody will just watch and laugh.”

She added that she was more interested in people “enjoying the performance” and “laughing about it” than getting the message.

“The song, Onye, is a love song which is basically about two young women boasting about the people they love.”

“It’s about two women who do whatever they can for their man. We just didn’t know that he was not “our man”.

The singer, who grew from being the faceless female voice on PSquare’s “Do Me” to being a big face and name in the industry, said:  “Most of the doors that open for me, open for me because of my voice, not necessarily because there’s anything special that I’m doing”.

For this wedding, only very few are likely to get invitations.

She jokingly added that if the wedding happens in 2015, only 12 or two people will get to attend.

She also said people should not expect a big wedding gown on camera but that she would not restrict guests from taking pictures, as is the new trend with celebrity weddings.

The super star whose latest music video, Megbele is enjoying airplay, seems to have her schedule full, as she hints that there is no time for a lavish wedding ceremony, much less a destination wedding.

Although, Omawumi’s husband to be, who she simply refers to as Kamillah’s father, wants a location wedding, the singer says that’s possible, adding that “Warri, is a location”.

She says details of her relationship with him is not available to the public, but they both go on family travels from time to time.

She spoke passionately about her daughter, who she loves to get take care of, without the help of a nanny, especially, when she travels.

According to her, she is a neighbour to her husband’s family and so Kamillah spends time with her father’s family whenever she has to travel for work.

Omawumi, also spoke about her intentions to go back to Law School, as she has always wanted to teach law.
