Waje, Nigerian R&B singer, has put out a new extended play (EP) titled ‘Heart Season’.
The body of work, which was released on Friday, follows after ‘Red Velvet’, her 2018 album.
With production credits going to OG, DJ Klem, Magic Beats and Ayo Alli-Akeem, the project embodies a total of five tracks.
In 2019, Waje, whose real name is Aituaje Iruobe, had in an interview with TheCable Lifestyle spoken of how she intends to aid the rise and global breakthrough of underrepresented talents in Nigeria’s music scene.
“I feel we’re all under the umbrella of Afrobeats but there are other genres also deserving of prominence,” she said.
“There are other artistes aside from those of Afrobeats that need the spotlight to showcase themselves. Having a concert that would grow to attain international recognition and have Nigerian artiste showcase themselves is ideal.
“This is because I do see lots of young artistes making the same mistake I made at the onset.
“Too much emphasis on being popular than making intentional efforts to build a bankable brand. Since I don’t have a record label to sign all of them, I can have a show that speaks for them. That’s what that is about.”
