Like many women, singer, Waje also had her days of humble beginnings when she did small businesses to keep body and soul together.
In a chat with Ademola Olonilua of Punch, she revealed that she had once sold chin chin to make a living and she had so many customers that she sold all her wares that same day.
For her, if she had not done music, she would have continued with her chin-chin business.
I don’t like cooking but I love to bake and I did that for a while with my friend Ijeoma Uzodima. We used to have this chin chin company and we used to sell everything in our stock. I remember that the magistrates in Onitsha at the time used to order from us and we used to sell it in a small can for about N600. We would cut 50kg chin chin for three days and my back would be paining me. I probably would have continued with that if I was not a singer. Ijeoma who is my very good friend was actually the one who used to push me.
