Star songstress and ONE ambassador on Sunday, 7 June treated select friends, fans and media execs to a superlative evening at Bogobiri House in Ikoyi Lagos.
The intimate show, which was presented by Trace Urban with support from Remy Martins, saw the soulful singer taking fans through her life story in a song.
Waje, in a sexy Ankara print and backed by an 8-piece band consisting of two guitarists, keyboardist, drummer and two female back-up singers, treated the audience to sessions of music interwoven with story bytes from her days as a student in Enugu through her performance with Wyclef Jean and her current status as one of Africa’s leading female acts.
Her breath taking performances included her very first single Somewhere, her breakout single For A Minute, her sleeper hit I Wish, and her chart topping offerings Onye and Coco Baby amongst others.
“I am very grateful to all who came. I have been very fortunate to enjoy the love of my fans and the media who have held it down for me from the first time I climbed on stage,” she said as the night wound down.
The atmosphere at the three-hour gig, which kicked off with cocktails on the red carpet at a venue like Bogobiri, whose ambience reflects Africa’s artistic heritage, helped deliver eclectic musical charm that Waje intended.
P.M.NEWS Entertainment Café learnt that the success of the inaugural ‘Waje Live: The Tale of An African Soul’ will see the energetic songstress, Waje tour the country and cities in Africa in the following weeks.
