Afro-soul star, Aituaje Iruobe aka Waje reportedly wants to quit doing music professionally.
Waje announced this move in a now-viral video, citing high cost of publicity and low purchase rates of her album as reasons why she was considering quitting.
She said, “After everybody shouted ‘Waje, your last album was how many years ago, please we need an album’. Where are all the people that were shouting?
“I don’t have the money for publicity and that’s what I am saying. Emerald’s (her daughter) school fees is there.
“it’s like I have ten things laid out for me and every single time, its always been my music, my music that is taking the bulk of my money.
“I am not willing to put money there anymore,” she said.
Nigerians on Twitter have jumped on the video to react, making ‘Waje’ the number two trending topic on Twitter, on Monday.
Most of the respondents symphatised with her, noting that the music industry can be a hard terrain to glide through. They pleaded with her not to quit music but face her mental health first.
