MEET THE LADY WHO CLAIMS TO BE THE OWNER OF M.I and WAJE’S HIT SONG “1 NAIRA”

Do you remember that popular song “One Naira” by M.I ft Waje? The lyrics of the chorus goes thus:

“Whether na one naira. Whether na one million
 Baby, you got me, Baby you got me
 You’re the only one that I see
 Mu na gi ga ‘nu garri (You and I would drink garri)
 Whether or not you get money, I’ll stay with you if you’ll stay with me”

So, a lady has come out to claim the owner and writer of the chorus provided by singer- Waje. This lady is no other person than her mummy- Mrs Iruobe. Is it right to call her lady? I think, Sweet Mama is better!

Waje revealed via he Instagram handle that her mum is the inspiration behind the “One naira” chorus.

According to her, after writing several choruses for the song, M.I wasn’t pleased with any. He then asked her to think of someone she would give up everything for. Waje immediately thought of her selfless mother who sacrificed everything, and wrote the chorus; which people are still singing from the time it was released till now.
