Nigerian singer, Aituaje Iruobe, popularly known as Waje, in a recent Instagram Live chat with gospel rapper, Bouqui, recounts how her pastor banned her from singing in the choir after she got pregnant at a tender age.
Waje, mother of a 21-year-old daughter, said she felt she loved the father of her child at the time and thought sex was the only way to express her love for him.
“I got into a relationship in SS3 and the relationship went from ‘puppy love’ to sexual, she said.

“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 quarrelled 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.
