Why I dislike being called underrated artiste – Waje


Singer Waje has expressed her dislike for the term ‘underrated artiste’ which most people call her.

Waje has continually been labelled underrated by her fans who argue that given her talent and contribution to the music industry, she deserves more accolades than she gets.

However, speaking in the latest episode of the Secrets Behind the Scenes podcast, Waje said she prefers not to be referred to as an underrated artist.

She explained that “underrated” is not a good compliment as many assumed it to be.

She said, “I do not like being addressed as an underrated artist. Words have power. Some people might celebrate it (being called underrated) and make it like, ‘People see who I am and that’s why they said so.’

“Your perception of success is between you and your mind.

Waje launched her music career in 2007.

The 43-year-old, however, first gained recognition after being featured in the remake of P-Square’s ‘Omoge Mi’. She was also featured on the duo’s 2008 hit track ‘Do Me’.
