I Got Pregnant In SS3, Banned From Singing In Church Choir - Singer Waje

Nigerian singer, Aituaje Iruobe, popularly known, as Waje, has opened up on how she got pregnant while in Senior Secondary School 3.

The singer also revealed how she was treated by her church, as she was banned from singing with the choir due to her pregnancy.

Waje shared her experience and story with gospel rapper, Bouqui in a recent Instagram live chat, where she discussed her Life, fears and her early childbirth.

According to her, she got into a relationship in SS3 and she described the relationship as moving from ‘puppy love to sexual relationship’. She stated that at the time of the relationship, she was in love and the only way she could express her love was through having sex with the father of her child. At that time, Waje said she saw him as a handsome boy, and didn’t understand the responsibility that came with making decisions.

In her words… “I got into a relationship in SS3 and the relationship went from ‘puppy love’ to sexual. At that time, I felt I loved him and that (sex) was the only way I could express my love. At that time, I saw a fine boy who liked me, though we quarreled on several occasions. I didn’t understand the responsibility that came with making decisions like that.

I got pregnant and I remembered one afternoon, I was in the bathroom when someone came to my house and told me my pastor wanted to see me. I knew that day, there were two things that would happen ? either I died or I died. Everything in me got drained.

Anyway, I went to see the pastor. He was in a conference room with other pastors and he said to me, ‘If you lie, you will die, because you are standing in front of God, Holy Spirit and me.’

He asked me, ‘Are you pregnant?’ and I said, ‘Yes’. He was so disappointed. He told me he wanted to see me in church every Wednesday and Sunday but I would no longer sing in the choir.”

Waje also stated that her mother was not aware of her pregnancy until she was five months gone.

Speaking further, she added… “I wrote the WASSCE while pregnant and nobody knew, not even my mother. I told her about my pregnancy after five months.

After one morning devotion, I told her I had something to tell her. I told her I was pregnant and wasn’t planning on aborting it.

At that point, she already knew who was responsible because he used to come to our house. After telling her, she told me to go back to bed. However, I knew something in her broke because she didn’t go back to sleep.”
