Nigerian singer, Waje says her latest single ‘Kpolongo’ was given to her by Timaya.
Narrating how the song was birthed, the ‘I Wish’ singer said Timaya invited her to his house and they listened to some beats together.
In a radio interview on sound city:
“Timaya called me up and asked if I was free on that day and I was, so I drove to his house and he played me a couple of beats. After we had gone like five songs in I was like ‘that first song’ and he said he was thinking I should have the song”.
“I was like what do you mean ‘have it’? Like you want to feature me or do I carry the song and be going. And he said yeah Waje you can have the song and I said okay. In one hour I wrote my verse, recorded. The producer Micon is amazing and that’s how we have the song.”
The singer added that the video of the song is currently in the pipeline. Waje also said she is critical of her performance, outfits and appearance while shooting videos.
In her words:
“I’m usually very critical of myself. I’m horrible, I can’t watch a video of myself and think the best of it.
“I usually play it for other people and they’ll be the judge. I just saw the first cut and I’m actually very impressed.”
