My Church banned me from singing in the Choir when I got pregnant in SS3 – Waje

Spread the love

Popular Nigerian Singer, Aituaje Iruobe, aka Waje has shared how her church banned her from singing in the choir after she got pregnant.

In an Instagram Live chat with gospel rapper recently, Bouqui, Waje went down memory lane about her ”relationship” with the father of her child. She said she felt she loved him at the time and that sex was the only way she could express her love.

Waje has a 21 year old daughter, Emerald Iruobe

“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

“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.” 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. Though, it’s not proper to get pregnant at that stage. But if it happens that way abortion is not the solution. I will use this medium to appeal to those girls outside that if they are not ready to get married they should completely abstain.

  2. It is so nice of you that you said the truth and stood up to the challenge without aborting the child
    Kudos to you for that singular act of refusing abortion

  3. To be pregnant at that stage is not good for someone who is having good ambition. That is what makes some ladies not to get where they want in their lives but thanks to your parents for not forsake you.

    1. So you expected them to keep you in the pastor’s house or clap for you that you were pregnant when you were just in ss3.
