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

Singer and songwriter Aituaje Iruobe popularly known as Waje has explained why her daughter, Emerald was featured in her new music video ‘Udue’.

Waje said, “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.”

Emerald starred as Johnny Drille’s love interest in the music video shot inside a park.

Did she do anything bad by featuring her daughter?

  • It wasn't bad at all since she was letting her daughter know more about the world

  • This is one thing you need to understand about Nigerian celebrities. They always carry their children along, to make sure the money and fame continues in the family's lineage. Another example is Regina Daniels and her mother, good one for them.

  • That is good ,may be she is letting her daughter to know more about the world

  • She has every right to bring her child into the scene,it might be her only way to show the world how she loves her daughter

  • Am sure she must have discovered that her daughter has a flare for music,so nothing wrong in doing so and her videos isn't that bad either

  • It wasn't bad. But she's trying to expose her to music industry early which may withdraw her from facing her education.

  • What I think and to my understanding this might be the starting point of her career and I really don't see any thing bad in that because she was showing how much she feels for her daughter

  • She didn't do anything wrong. Featuring her daughter it's personal decision.  Maybe she wants her daughter to follow her footsteps 

    - Chinwe Igboh - 2019-08-22 22:04:55 Quote

  • I don't think it's bad because she's building a better future for her daughter, her daughter will be known in most places and very soon she'll be brands ambassador, advertise products and get paid and others. 

    What about Beyonce who featured blue ivy in brown skin girl, she's hit 100 billboards

  • Wake has always been one of the most talented and decent women in the music industry. Making her daughter feature in the song makes it more realistic

  • Waje for years has shown what it truely means to be a musician and taking this step in involving her daughter in this music video shouldn't be viewed with any misjudgement,as it is a normal thing.and I strongly feel this is the right step to take in nurturing her daughters future in the entertainment industry if she has one already.

  • Yea, to me, that was matured and extremely wise...instead of her to act as the big mama girlfriend of Johnny Drills, she used Emerald instead

    👉 This makes her feel more respected and polished ( coz, if otherwise, it'd have looked like another shameless Tiwa Savage & Wizkid collabo)

    👉She is indirectly grooming her daughter down for the music industry( just like Beyonce and Blue Ivy)

    I think what she did was nice

    nice job, Waje....You rock!

  • To my own level of understanding 

    She is trying to put her daughter through 

    And to alsoake her popular 

    There is nothing wrong with that

    Waje kudos for you dear

  • I on my own do not think she actually did anything wrong she was trying to bring up her child the way she thinks will help 

    Apart from that others don't like to bring their children to the spot light she's done good and from that the girl might pickup something

  • To me, every move is cool as long as it moves well #no bad vibes. What she did doesn't call for tensed attention. When Davido used Chioma in his 'assurance' it brought more success to the music video, to Davido himself and also made Chioma gain more fame and support from her fans. So what waje deal isn't way too high.

  • There's nothing wrong in what she did she's absolutely showing how affectionate and how much loves our daughter. You have no idea how the daughter is going to feel for featuring her in her song she is proud of her daughter.

  • Any art work is first contemplated in the mind. She saw the video in her mind before the actual making of the video took place. She didn't do anything wrong to feature her daughter in the video. Kudos Waje.

  • I love what see dead,by singing song with her daughter she is letting the doughter  to know. that by singing song you will be well known by the world as a musician, and in the other hand she is telling the daughter that music is a nice and good investment  in live, so by doing that she is telling the daughter  to follow  her foot step.

  • It's a very nice one. It is only a way of encouraging the daughter abd if she has a music career it will be very easy for her to penetrate the industry because her mother already made a name

  • I love that Wake. It shows you retain your pride as a musician and also as a mother. You are a role model to your daughter. You have your decision to make and I think you made yhe right one.

  • It not bad.. But she wants her daughter to be artist and fame... Let the world know her daughter.. And she wants Johnny and her daughter to get along together.. It really nice of her..

  • It's not really bad featuring her daughter, Emerald, in the video, it's not harmful in any way. I think it will boost the girl's confidence and belief in herself the more...

    Waje is a great artiste and her instinct isn't wrong on this one. Though I've not seen the video but I hope it's great...!
