Waje Stepped out in Lagos Last night to quietly watch the show of someone who inspired her music, with no idea she would actually get the opportunity to meet Lauryn Hill in person.
The Lauryn Hill Live in Lagos concert that held at the Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island on Sunday night had many music lovers in attendance.
One of the most excited people to attend the event was music star Waje who happens to be a huge fan of Lauryn Hill.
Waje narrated how her unplanned meeting with Lauryn Hill came out of thin air, the ecstatic feeling she felt when she held her hands and how she actually wept on meeting her Inspiration.
She shared her experience on Instagram saying:
Just before the show started a beautiful lady walked up to me telling me how much she loved my music, in her words “we’ve been playing you songs in philly ” , this sister sang the chorus of No Be You and I was blown away by her voice, soon I realized she was Lauryns backup singer. My life changed last night.
I cried when Lauryn was performing and thinking, in my life time I see woman wey I use her songs learn work!!!!! She killed it! She gave me music life! So I got home and next thing my phone rings “waje Lauryn wants to meet u?
I ran back like I was going to collect the certificate that validates the school of music life I have been in since, she took my hand and I cried all thru…… I’m so sure I embarrassed her but i had to tell her how grateful I am.
Thank you Lauryn for music… Long story short, do your own with diligence and authenticity and you will save lives, inspire people to reach their goals as she inspired many singers and musicians. I’m so honored. Shout out to my sis @jbeautifull
