Waye has the same sleek R&B melodies that make artists like Tiwa Savage and Seyi Shey regular features on Afropop DJs setlist. She released her first single, Yago back in 2012 and has lurked around the indie music space ever since. We invited her for our Aux Sessions in 2018 and she took advantage of the opportunity to reach mainstream audiences with the compelling performance she delivered. The romantic song she performed, Your Love, was her strongest song yet and she finally broke through to mainstream audiences with the song’s viral success.
Speaking about the exposure the song brought her, Waye explained that she wasn’t expecting people to pay attention to the song. “I just did it like oh content, okay cool. So when it came out and everyone was really making a fuss about it I was like oh are you serious. Everyone was really happy. I got a lot of followers. I got a lot of fans from it.” Her feature on our Aux Session sealed her superstar status which she has continued to build on ever since.
