Nigerian Singer Waje Reveals How Her Mum And Pastor Reacted To Finding Out She Was 5 Months Pregnant As A Teen

Singer,Waje, went down memory lane during the week when she recounted how she got pregnant while writing the West African Senior School Certificate Examinations.She shared her experience in an Instagram Live chat with gospel rapper, Bouqui.

She said, “I got into a relationship in SS3 and the relationship went from ‘puppy love’ to s#xual. 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 didn’t know she was pregnant until she was five months gone.

She said, “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.”

  1. Na wa oo! This her pregnancy stories that she's been telling since my secondary school days.

    1. Chisom for real?
      Well I think it's something to talk about. Never heard it tho. I'm too laid back and boring

    2. What is wrong with you this Chisom? If you are tired of reading about it then skip. Some of us haven’t heard or read about it! You seem to have an opinion and think you know about everything and everyone.

    3. The same worn-out anon 15:04, Choke on your bitterness and shrink up!! And while at it, don't you ever forget to cry me a bloody river.

      @Simply Divine, you ain't boring my darling, you're just not into entertainment gist or something like that and yes, It is something to talk about ojareh.

      @Gifty,不不!! Don't mind me oo baby boo.

    4. Chisom it was an interview online. She was asked a question regarding it and she answered. She didn't just go off telling it.

    5. There's nothing funny about being bad-mouthed.
      CHISOM is quick to curse. That's uncouth.

    6. Chisom you talk of bitterness.... yet your comment is the one full with bitterness

    7. This one person or Chisom matter,Chisom go don tunyeru gi obele azu before.

      She may be of different opinion in some matters but uncouth is far far from her attributes biko.

    8. @Adivincci,Aiit baby.

      @The same worn-out useless anon, onwe beh di ihe ifuu. I Warned you to stay off my comment, to take your shrinked and bitter self off of my comment because if you don't, I will not pity you at all at all. Enwe ofiaa! Uncouth gbu kwa gi there.

      @OSD You're minding that ewuu yelee?? Thanks alot my blessed nwanne.
      @Ever young, lol ojare my dear.

  2. "If you lie, you will die", men playing God.. Thank God she kept her child.

    1. Yeah, best decision ever. Her daughter is so pretty.

    2. That part had me rolling my eyes candy
      Her daughter is so grown now and pretty. She did the right thing

    3. @Ms Abroadian, she's so pretty. Waje and her daughter look more like sisters sef
      @Bini, I rolled my eyes, like really. He couldn't talk to her as his child, but tried to put fear in her.

    4. Candy, you obviously scorned that part.
      Well, Waje didn't and chose to tell the truth before God.
      Thank God that her pastor did what was right by keeping her in fellowship but out of the choir - discipline and love.
      Her church didn't judge and condemn her for that mistake. Some lessons in that.

    5. But fear is the power religion has over people and MOGs wield it like a samurai sword. Remove fear and put Love, they feel powerlessness.

    6. Like you have dealt with "all" MOGs.

  3. Lmaoooo.
    But pastor has been preaching "flee from fornication and all sexual immorality "
    Please free the pastor. So if he left you go for carry the belle de sing for choir.
    I'm not judging but I'm judging.

    1. If ONLY you weren't in hurry to comment, you would comprehend what you read.
      Now madam Lmaoooo14:40 go back and read the interview, this time around read very s-l-o-w-l-y, wishing you senses and comprehension.

      Awwwwww Waja, you are Indeed a strong girl 弘弘弘弘

    2. That was a narrative. She didn't imply the pastor's action was wrong.

    3. The way they talk about pregnancy makes young girls/women to consider "outside wedlock way" as something good.

      Suspending her from singing was right because it was illegal.

  4. Thank God .Okiroyalty

  5. Eeyah. You're strong and beautiful Waje. It's well with you.

  6. Thank God for that pastor.
    Yes, you shouldn't sing in the choir if
    you are living in fornication.
    But he ought to have suspended you
    from the church. 1 Cor. 5:10-12
    Thank God too that you did not kill that child.
    That would have been a greater sin.
    Hope you are wiser through it all.

    1. No be she shouldn't be suspended from the church, but only relieved from holding any church position.

      Na wa ooo!!!
      I still remember Sarah Jakes' story of how she got pregnant at 13 and so many of her father's c(T.D Jakes) were angry and left church but her father still allowed her attend church and also showed her love.

      The church of God should be a place of love and not banishment.

      The way you twist scriptures Sha..

    2. Suspended her from hearing God's word because she was pregnant??? Please.

    3. Twins she is called ANG for a reason

    4. @Twin and abroadian
      read 1 cor. 5, and Gal. 6:1-3 and see
      She is suspended and very spiritual women are sent to minister to her
      It is just like you mom grounding you when you do something wrong. It is not
      in hate but in Love.
      She isn't deprived of God's word. She is suspended so that other young girls will
      learn to be chaste and so that she will be saved from the errors of her ways.
      Please take time to study the Scriptures.

    5. 1 Cor. 5: 11But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister c but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer,
      a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people.

      12What business is it of mine to judge those outside the
      church? Are you not to judge those inside? 13God will judge
      those outside. “Expel the wicked person from among you.”

      Galatians 6:1 Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a
      sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently.
      But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted. 2Carry each other’s burdens,
      and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.

    6. Why should she be suspended from the house of God? Ask yourself, is that what Jesus would do? Relieved of a position, yes. Banned from church? NO!!!!

    7. Na wa. The pastor did the right thing. Suspended her from choir but not from the church. Same thing happened to my cousin, she was Suspended for 2yrs from the choir but not the church. She married the guy,they had church blessing and after the suspension she went back to the choir.

    8. Why is nobody refuting the word of God quoted above and pasted; 1 Cor. 5 and Gal. 6:1-3?
      Isn't it the Holy Spirit of Jesus that inspired those words?
      Where you you people get your opinions from. If you have Scriptures, quote it.

    9. @Bini,
      I did not write "Banned from the church"
      What I wrote is "suspended"

    10. ANG is right. Suspended NOT BANNED or EXCOMMUNICATED or CONDEMNED.

      Hebrews 12 v 9 (NIT)
      "Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live!"

      Suspended for a little while but still have mature Christians minister to and guide her through that period to RESTORE HER to the fold.

      Her pastor did what he discerned would work best in her situation seeing that she was just a teenager. That's why he told her to attend church on Wednesdays and Sundays.

      Discipline comes from a place of love. ♥️

    11. They don't send people out from church but suspension, which is an act of discipline. After some years everything will be OK. My colleague had a child during her WAEC period, the guy didnt even bother, she gained admission to Poly, same school with the guy. The guy used to mock her that she was always wearing "tear-tear cloths", smelling,etc

    12. @17:53 and Mao
      Thanks for clarifying these things. The word of God is clear. Those who disobey it will,no matter
      what. It is a mindset.

  7. Replies
    1. You know this is just a part of the interview. This doesn't even cover all that was talked about.

  8. My Mom would have raised dust, I trust her. . It is well dear

  9. Eh ya!!! thank God she still made something meaningful out of her life and now she has a beautiful daughter as well.
    You have a a very amazing voice Waje 弘❤️

    1. She sure made the right decision. Her voice and stage craft is very goood

  10. My friends senior sister had similar story. D child is now a graduate and working and she just got married at 40 with a child on d way.
    Those who decide to keep such pregnancy at such young age i try not to mock them cos it aint easy; d shame. They cld have taken an easy way out.

    1. True couldn't have been easy. My cousins child she had at 13, is in Uni now. She just had her first child for the husband she later married.

  11. Waje thank God you stayed in fellowship as guided by your Pastor and also your mom who though brokenhearted, stood by you through it all.
    One mistake is enough. Thank you for keeping your child.

    God knows we are not perfect though we strive to live by His Word.

    Stay strong in the faith.
