Nigerian singer Waje has opened up on why she got sexually active and eventually got pregnant while she was in her final secondary school year SSS3.
In a recent Instagram Live chat with gospel rapper, Bouqui, Waje shared her experience, recalling that she had gotten into a relationship that year and thought sex was the only way to show her love to the young man sh was seeing.
According to her, the relationship went from puppy love to sexual and as she didn’t understand the responsibility that came with such decisions, she gave into sex, seeing a fine boy who liked her.
“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.“, she said.The pregnancy then happened and the poor school girl was keen on keeping it and even hid it from her mom for 5 months. “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”, Waje said further.

“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. 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“, she added.
