Nigeria’s prom queen of music, Aituaje Iruobe, popularly known as WAJE (Words Aren’t Just Enough), has kicked off her ‘Mountain Project’ shortly after releasing the video to her latest single dubbed ‘Mountain’ featuring popular South African singer, Lira.
Speaking about the project to HipTv in an exclusive interview, the singer said; “This project is aimed at encouraging everyone to celebrate and embrace the concept of victory through trials in life. Everyone has a story but the underlying idea of this project is to make people see their stories as that of persistence and determination, of the will to keep striving even amid struggles.
This demonstrates the fact that as individuals, no matter what life throws at us, we can climb any mountain’’ The song ‘Mountain’ in itself, amplifies the celebration of resilient spirit of the African individual especially the women in our society.
WAJE who performed ‘Mountain’ alongside Lira for the first time on stage at the 2017 AMVCAs, took to her Instagram to announce the project by taking on the persona of different Nigerian women who have distinct struggles but are persistent and resilient to keep on striving through it all. She urges the audience to share a story about a mountain in their lives and how they have been able to keep climbing it.
