Recently, singer Waje released a short documentary that mirrored her utter frustration at being a musician. She spelt out how tiring it has been jostling between being a singer, a record label owner and a single mother. Her complaints got a lot of sympathy from fans, loved ones and colleagues.
One of the people who come forward to extend their empathy is record label owner Ubi Franklin. He took to his Twitter page to offer his consolation.
But he did more than just express how sorry he was for her, he also talked about how he could relate to her problems. Ubi spoke of the challenges of being a record label owner and a singer at the same time.
According to him, this was not an easy affair to run. He acknowledged the fact that Waje was really working hard and deserved respite.

Even more, in a reaction to the comment of another sympathetic person, the guy revealed how painful it also was for a singer to leave a record label after he or she had been groomed and marketed.
"Ayo it’s really sad. This is the reason why when labels spend money on a talent and he/she leaves the label it’s always bad time for the label, it’s not easy to fund music. Waje is her own label she spends on everything herself so I can imagine what she is going through."
