Top Nigerian singer Waje wept like a baby at the recently held Lauryn Hill concert in Lagos.
Waje was at the Lauryn Hill concert where she met the former Fugees star and was completely overwhelmed at being in the presence of her idol.
The Grammy award winning American singer was on stage in Lagos on Sunday, August 30, 2015.
Waje shared a selfie of herself with Hill on Instagram along with a caption on what it felt like to meet the American star.
She wrote: “Just before the show started a beautiful lady walked up to me telling me how much she loved my music. In her words, “We ve been playing your songs in Philly.” This sister sang the chorus of No Be You and I was blown away by her voice. soon I realized she was Lauryns back-up singer. My life changed last night. I cried when Lauryn was performing and thinking, in my life time I see woman wey I use her songs learn work!!!!! She killed it! She gave me music life! So I got home and next thing my phone rings:
“Waje Lauryn wants to meet u?” I ran back like I was going to collect the certificate that validates the school of music life I have been in since, she took my hand and I cried all thru…… I’m so sure I embarrassed her but I had to tell her how grateful I am. Thank you Lauryn for music… Long story short, do your own with diligence and authenticity and you will save lives, inspire people to reach their goals as she inspired many singers and musicians. I’m so honored.”
Waje was among the Nigerian celebrities that recently met Bono, the lead singer of legendary Irish band U2. Bono is the founder of One Campaign, a philanthropic movement aimed at alleviating poverty in Africa. Waje and actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde featured on One Campaign’s theme song for female empowerment called ‘Strong Girl’.
