One 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”.
Singer, Omawumi, has revealed she may be getting married to the father of her child, Kamillah, sometime in 2015, although it would not be widely publicised.
For this wedding, only very few are likely to get invitations.
The musician, who was a guest on Sunrise, said men who are interested in her romantically, stand no chance, as she has “a very loving family and (maybe) sometime next year, we’ll probably get married”.
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.
“I will enjoy being a single parent until God sends the next man to come.” The words of Nigeria’s pop diva; Omawumi who avoided discussing issues of her love life on this week’s edition of Rubbin’ Mind.
The West African idol however revealed that she was willing to let go her career in place of raising of her daughter because “her life means everything to me” she added.
Nigeria’s pop diva; Omawumi in this week’s episode of Rubbin’ Minds revealed her humble background which she is very proud of, as she narrates her growing up while cooking Nkwobi and Isi Ewu and as well tendering for customers at her mother’s ‘glorified beer parlour’ in Warri, Delta state.
Famed for her regular use of Pidgin English, the West African Idol explains her choice of expression, claiming it saves hers when sometimes “I just hook”.
She also notes that it (Pidgin English) is a major ‘selling point’ for people from the Niger Delta where she hails from and that English language is not her language.
Omawumi also discussed about the dawn of her music career at the West African Idol and also opened up on her sophomore album and forthcoming concert.
