At the time I felt I loved the person and sex was the only way I could express it.” She also spoke on how she eventually told her mother about her pregnancy. According to her, she opened up to her mum about her condition after she was five months in. she also said that she even wrote her WAEC while pregnant and nobody knew.
Waje said that it was after one morning devotion that she told her mum she was pregnant and was not willing to abort it. The singer then spoke further on how she was stopped from singing in the choir as a result of her condition. She said that one afternoon someone came to her house to call her that her pastor wanted to see her. Waje recounted how it went down. She said: “When I got to Papa’s office, he was in the conference room and he looked at me and said: ‘if you lie, you will die because you are standing in front of God, you’re standing in front of the Holy Spirit and you’re standing in front of me. Are you pregnant? I said yes. He was so disappointed.” The singer then continued that the pastor told her that he wanted to see her in church on every Sunday and Wednesday service. He also mandated her to never miss a prayer meeting but added that she could no longer sing in the choir.
