Watch: Waje Releases Video For “Udue” Featuring Johnny Drille
Singer and songwriter, Waje presents the music video ‘Udue’ featuring Johnny Drille, a single off her Red Velvet album.
Also seen in the video is the singer’s daughter Emerald, who made a cameo as Johnny Drille’s love interest. The video was shot on location at the scenic Lufasi Park in Lagos state, Nigeria.
All credits for the video go to Fatima Omokwe as the producer and director, Catalyst.
Waje released her most highly anticipated second album Red Velvet in 2018, five years after her debut album Waje.
In March, the singer was in the news after she revealed she was financially depressed and would be quitting music. According to her, she was not impressed with the low monetary turnout from the album and was disappointed because people demanded her to release it.
The album Red Velvet is a melange of the singer’s diverse styles, streamlined and tailored around the central theme of love.
Waje’s retirement will be a huge loss to the entertainment industry as there are few women with such vocal prowess in the industry.
However, it is not expected that she will quit the entertainment industry totally as she has proven that her talent is multifaceted. She was cast in a movie recently premiered along with her close pal Omawumi.
She Is, the movie, was produced by Hermanes Media, a production outfit Waje and Omawumi founded. Hermanes Media provides services such as film/TV production, TV adverts, content curation, brand event activation, and creative digital marketing.
Asides music and movie production, Waje has a foundation Safe House, through which she collaborates with different non-governmental organisations on their projects.
The foundation was launched on October 1, 2012, and has assisted NGOs such as Mental and Environmental Development Initiative for Children (MEDIC) and Child LifeLine. She has also donated to orphanages in Nigeria and Kenya in association with a corporate organisation.
