Dressed in an electric blue Samuel Noon dress Waje said, “Music has been used as a tool for social change in our communities, as we sit here to enjoy Africa’s best, some people are either at home or in the hospital fighting for their lives, or mourning the passing of loved ones. Millions of Nigerians, especially women and children are losing their lives from completely preventable causes. 750,000 children under five die in this country every year.”

"As artists, we must do something about this; add your voice and support the Make Naija Stronger campaign” she added.
