What has kept me and Waje as friends – Omawunmi

Singer Omawunmi has explained what as kept she and her bestie as freids over the years. According to Oma, it’s just understanding each other. Speaking to Saturday Beats she also talked about how it has been easy to work with each other as women.

“It is very easy to work with women, especially those that are professionals. Sometimes, people have the impression that women are supposed to be slow and that we do not grasp things easily but the truth is that women are one of the best multitaskers in the world. So, when you give a woman a task, she thinks of how she can be the best at the job and also the best version of herself so that you can come back and work with her.

“As regards me and Waje, we have been friends for a long time and I always tell her that if we were a man and woman and had a child together, the child would have become a teenager by now. It does not mean that we do not have issues but whenever such happens, we sit down and trash them out. I think that it is one of the things that make us friends and good business partners.”
