Waje shared her experience and story with gospel rapper, Bouqui in a recent Instagram live chat, where she discussed her Life, fears and her early childbirth.
According to her, Waje got into a relationship in SS3 and she described the relationship as moving from ‘puppy love to sexual relationship’. she stated that at the time of the relationship, she was in love and the only way she could express her love was through having sex with the father of her child. At that time, Waje said she saw him as a handsome boy, and didn’t understand the responsibility that came with making decisions.
Going down memory lane, Waje said she was called by her Pastor and was emotionally drained because of the anxiety she felt when her Pastor found out she was pregnant. She was asked to see her Pastor every Wednesday and Friday. She stated that her mum did not know she was pregnant until she was 5 months due.
Waje said she told her Mum one morning, during devotion that she was pregnant and was nursing the thought of aborting the baby. Waje said she knew her mum was very disappointed at the time.
