Check out the video for Waje’s hit single “So Inspired” ft. Muna. I must say that Nigerian female artists are seriously not smiling! (and Clearance Peters too). I now understand what the fuss on this video is all about, very impressive. The videos idea/message is kind of in tune with Omawumi’s “If you ask me”, and (if you do ask me) I think the ladies are slowly stealing the (very much deserved) spotlight.
The “So Inspired” video was initially scheduled to drop online on 04/04/2011 but since it broke on TV on tuesday WAJE’s fan mail has exploded with messages from fans asking for video to be released online so that can play back to their fill. And WAJE made the decision to break protocol saying “why wait?”
WAJE the fiery songbird, in late 2010 dropped a double single CD carrying her smooth R&B buzz single “For a minute” and “So Inspired” featuring budding femcee Muna. “For a minute” got massive rotation and rave reviews on TV, radio and internet platforms and was well received by music fans across the continent.
The follow up single “So Inspired” an up-tempo tune laced by producer E-Kelly is receiving heavy airplay on major radio stations in Nigeria. The video for “So Inspired” broke on international TV platforms MTV Base and SoundCity on Tuesday and since then fans have been nothing short of delighted. WAJE’s purpose on the joint is to inspire young people, females especially to continuously aspire for greatness regardless of the drawbacks in their environment and life in general. In the video WAJE connects with the oppressed woman, as she plays the role of a distressed and abused female who wouldn’t give up on herself. Hopefully more women will feel empowered after watching the video. Pictures were shot and directed by ace videographer Clarence Peters in Johannesburg, South Africa. Currently WAJE along with other major artistes is on a tour with the Youngsters Organization in conjunction with IRI and USAID to encourage youths to exercise their rights to vote.
WAJE continues to perform all across Nigeria spreading her message of love and courage at the same time tidying up production of her long anticipated first album W.A.J.E (Words Aren’t Just Enough) which is intended to drop this June.
