The mom of one penned a tribute to her mum, thanking her for her understanding, love, support and a beautiful heart.

She wrote:

For all the times you gently picked me up
Your arms always open
when I needed a hug.
Your heart understood
when I needed a friend.
For all you do,
you do with love.
You are so special,
A gift from above.
And with all my heart,
I want to say,
I love you Mum and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE ORIGINAL STAR GIRL 👧


Waje drew the attention of her fans back to 2011 when she recorded ‘One Naira’ with Nigerian rapper MI, stating categorically how she drew inspiration from her mother to pen the chorus.
