She started making music early but gained more recognition when she was co-opted on P-Square’s “Omoge Mi.” Her career has continued to shoot upward ever since. Who doesn’t know Waje today?

Husband/Boyfriend

For some ladies, the dream is to have a boyfriend and then a husband. But, of course, not everyone ends up achieving that dream. For whatever reason. Waje is one of those who do not have a husband. She has never been married. In 2021, speculations were rife that she was about to get married to singer Ric Hassani. But it turned out they merely shared a picture to promote their collaboration.

Lifestyle

Waje loves life but is not exactly loud about it. She’s also a firm believer in giving a hand to others in need after having been blessed herself. This informed the launch of her “Safe House” project back in 2012. The Waje’s Safe House project was an initiative aimed at supporting NGOs to achieve their goals.

Net Worth

Well, the pub;lic has been doing the talking and the conservative estimate of her net worth is about $1 million – an impressive sum by Nigerian standards.

House

With most celebrities, there is seldom a limit to the length they can go to ensure that their houses reflect their status. At least Waje is an example of one celeb who went to great lengths to ensure that she had a crib befitting her status. She has a cool crib in the heart of Lagos, the picture of which she had once shared on social media.
