‘I started drinking, I became bitter’ | Waje speaks on the time she fell into depression

At the Guinness Colourful world event in October 2013, Waje was criticized on social media for being ‘fat’.

The singer has now opened up about the incident and how it almost led to the early-death of her career in a new interview with Genevieve magazine.

She said, “Someone took a picture of a remote control and said I looked like that. That made me say to myself, ‘you know what Waje, music isn’t for you’. I had come out with an album, but when that happened, I said you know what, I can’t deal with this. I cried for hours that day at Eko Hotel. And interestingly, I started feeling the way they said I looked.”

She recalled how the incident knocked her into a state of depression as she started to drink and was being resentful to those close to her.

“So, I started drinking. I became bitter. I told myself I’m done with music. I’m going to find something else to do. I didn’t eat for days. I became angry with every family member who came to talk to me. I had no reasons to smile or be happy and decided to sign out of all my social media accounts”, She told the magazine.

She was however, able to bounce back when she went into a fitness and therapeutic session with fitness expert, Uzikwendu.

She said, “I started working with Uzikwendu of Uzi’s Burnout. And Uzi did not just work on my body, he worked on my mind, also. Through that, I separated myself from the negativity and focused on what I wanted to hear. I started to create an environment where the only thing I heard about myself is positive and great.”
