Nigeria talented female singer Aituaje Ebele Iruobe popularly known as Waje has revealed in a recent interview with Ebuka Obi-Uchendu on Rubbin Minds how her daughter affected her alcohol lifestyle. According to report she was ashamed when her daughter met her drunk. In her words

The one time my daughter saw me drunk was the reason I had to check myself. It was not a great sight and that was in 2013.

I got home after an event. You know when you go to an event and you take one glass of champagne here and there.

“I got home and I was drunk. Guess who opened the door for me? It was my daughter. That is not something any parent should do. When your child is living with you, there are some things you should not do”,  she further made it known that her as a mother affected both her personal life and her Celebrity life and that’s the reason she rejected some offers and anyone who she romantically involved with doesn’t visit her home. In her words

 “I give a shoutout to my mother because when I had Emerald, she did not stay with me till she was 13. My mother really helped me with the foundation and that is me being honest. With parenting, there is never really a handbook that would tell you how you should be. You just know that some of the experiences you have had will definitely make you make the right foundations with your child when it comes to characters, principles, and how they live.

“It is not a job; so when you ask me that, ‘Waje how do you do it?’, I just do it.’ It is not a job. Music is what I do; acting is what I do, but a parent is who I am. I just do it. I do not know how I do it, but I just have to.

“Support system is very important, but you just embody the role when it comes. Not everybody does that, but you just have to. Looking at her now, she is in her final year and I am just like, ‘wow!’
