@khanofkhans11_ said, “Waje asking for collab from Tems like an up and coming artiste. When she could have just reached out to her privately. A whole aunty in the industry. Even Tems will feel embarrassed.”
@Tee_Classiquem1 said, “I don’t see anything wrong if Waje want a collabo from Tems, the only issue i have with it is her approach, how about a DM or even mail? she is a legend and shouldn’t be moving like an upcoming act, imagine Davido coming on twitter to beg Asake or Fireboy for a collabo, its weird”.
@Jydeskillz said, “Waje wey be OG dey find tems for collabo. Life get as e be”.
@chimebuka7 said, “I hope Tems won’t be seen as a bad person if she turns down Waje’s offer, cuz that’s not how an oldie in the industry should request for a feature.”
@danieliyam said, “Waje. No please. This isn’t it. You should on the same ranks with Asa. I would understand if you were publicly reaching out to people like Brandy, Mary J, Mariah, Kidjo..”
