Nigerian popular singer, Aituaje Iruobe, better known as Waje has recounted her experience when she got pregnant as a teenager.
The single mother revealed she got pregnant while she was writing her final exam in the secondary school, WAEC.
Waje shared her experience in a recent Instagram Live Chat with female rapper, Bouqui.
Waje said ”I got into a relationship in SS3 and the relationship went from ‘puppy love’ to sexual. At that time, I felt I loved him and that sex was the only way I could express my love. At that time, I saw a fine boy who liked me, though we quarreled on several occasions. I didn’t understand the responsibility that came with making decisions like that”
She also revealed that how her pastor got to know about the pregnancy while she was a member of the church choir as at that time.
She said ”He was in a conference room with other pastors and he said to me, ‘if you lie, you will die, because you are standing in front of God, Holy Spirit and me’. He asked me, ‘Are you pregnant? and I said, ‘Yes’. He was so disappointed”.
That ended her membership in the church’s choir. The ‘One Naira’ crooner also stated that her mother didn’t know she was pregnant until she was five months gone.
She said ‘‘I wrote the WASSCE while pregnant and nobody knew; not even my mother. I told her about my pregnancy after five months. After one morning devotion, I told her I had something to tell her. I told her I was pregnant and wasn’t planning on aborting it. At that point, she already knew who was responsible because he used to come to our house”
Waje revealed her mother was heartbroken when she told her and that she couldn’t sleep that day.
