Nigerian female singer, Aituaje Iruobe, known as Waje has never been one to exchange words with her fans on social media, but yesterday, the hitmaker was forced to address a hurting issue.
According to the singer, she shared a photo of her mother on Instagram and a follower said nasty things about how the older woman was as ‘ugly’ as her daughter, a comment that quite touched the singer.
“What happened to us?” Waje asked a few hours ago. “What happened to when paying a compliment didn’t mean weakness, what happened to respect and understanding boundaries?”
Celebrity bashing had become a favourite sport, and though many people ignore comments of this nature, stars like Kate Henshaw have sworn to clap back at any follower who has unkind things to say, and to always block them from having access to their page.
Now, Waje is addressing hers through a emotional memo to all her fans. Read what she wrote:
Love covers a multitude of sin yet it’s so difficult for us,we have become a people so invested in bringing others down, laughing silently at misfortunes. Define wickedness……. What happened to us?what happened to when paying a compliment didn’t mean weakness, what happened to respect and understanding boundaries, I put up a pic of my mum to celebrate her and someone said she’s as ugly as you. Are we so desperate for attention that we light the fire that Will grill our souls to death, social media is now the place to show hate and some laugh and say its entertainment? Don’t forget! you sow yam na yam you go reap. Who is fooling WHO. Don’t let The devil use you to shine. Love !
