The joy behind Wande’s confidence
She’s bold. She’s fearless. And she’s unashamed. So what’s the secret behind Wande’s confidence?
Known as the First Lady of Reach Records, her rise to fame as their first female hip-hop artist didn’t come easy. At an early age, she felt stuck chasing the validation of others.
Born in Nigeria, where the culture is roughly 50% Christian and 50% Muslim, Wande had both influences in her home. This led to her father disapproving of her curiosity about God. Moreover, she felt the academic pressure to study biology and become a doctor. Family, friends, culture, career – Wande thought seeking this approval would bring her fulfillment. But instead, she was left empty.
Until the impact of Lecrae’s rap music and the assignment of a middle school biology project altered the trajectory of her life forever.
