Life as an entertainer in the music industry can be a tough one for many artistes especially when the control of their work is being dragged with them.
Talented Nigerian singer, Waje, recently revealed the experience she once had with an investor who put N25m into her music but did not want to give her peace of mind because of it.
According to Waje, the man had invested the sum of N25m to her craft and she and her team were pleased and ready to go to work. The singer revealed that they even tried to make things as transparent as possible by planning to map out ways the money would be spent on the music.
However, the singer was in for a surprise after she noticed that the control of her work was being dragged with her.
Waje said that the man the investor put in charge started to make funny demands such as wanting his wife to do her makeup or his sister to sew her costume. The singer also said that the man started hanging up her calls and that she had to start using different lines to reach him.
In order to be able to have peace of mind, Waje said that she had to return the money. She also said that it would be better investors understand that it is a business and that she is also a businesswoman.
She said: " I carry the 25 million naira, returned it to them so that I can drink water and keep cup.”
