BN Video Premiere: Waje – I Wish




The long-awaited video to Waje‘s “I Wish” is finally here. Waje‘s ‘outfit’ is rather suggestive of vulnerability, a theme prevalent in the “I Wish” single. Directed by Clarence Peters.

Styled by Bolaji
Make-up by JJB
Hair by Debs

Themed – Lifeless, Naked and Vulnerable, the edgy music video uses different themed moods; the broken mirror scene reflects the broken theme of the song, the black bride with a torn wedding gown explores the depths of depression and the red rose-petaled bath scene plays with the concept of a heart beaten ice-cold.

In this video, Waje departs from her usual sweetheart persona to take on a metaphoric range of carefully themed characters. The unusual theme set and depth gives this powerful music video an unforgettable feel.

    I love you Waje, But the video and song don’t correspond at all. Just you walking on the streets of Lag alone, would have done justice to the song. Great voice and song by the way!

    Lovely song. The fast paced beat kinda lessened the vulnerability theme and made the birthday suit unnecessary, IMO.

    wooow Waje, i must say this song just made me really remember the times when i was heartbroken, i cried naked on the bathroom floor, in front of the mirror. this video has alot to tell only if you are a music lover. Waje thumbs up. I totally relate with this video. it shows how hardworking you are, the thoughts and emotions you put into it. i love you Waje and am still your NO1 Fan.

    You have to know good music to appreciate this video. And for the nudity scene well i have been there and the thoughts where *am i not beautiful enough, is my body not suitable enough* i guess all men are not the same, my King is out there somewhere. i am touched by this video. Thank you Waje. xoxoxox

    @ mama mia, you have a good head and brain inside, just walking down the street of lagos would have passed a more explicit message…..nice song, nice beat

    Love it! I beg thats not nudity na! She’s probably wearing a swimsuit and her sitting position just gives an illusion of nudity….

    Waje is one in a million. She is the only Nigerian artiste asides Asa, Bez that tries to go deep into the human soul and express what is within. I am humbled and proud of this babe and i swear her sticking to her style of music, her originality and her respect fro her fans by giving us the undiluted truth will see her to the Grammys Amen

    I love the song…the video is sooo refreshing….Fantastic production by Clarence Peters and his team

    I think Clarence was really bored and wanted do something challenging for the fun of it and so he chose this video….I don’t see why else all this drama was ‘forced’ in. But I’m proud of your work tho. Waje the real owner of this beat (minus the lyrics) will charge you for piracy o, I won’t mention the name but check Google sha #NuffSaid
