Dija who was born in Kaduna, northern Nigeria, a region plagued with child marriage further stated that early childbirth is a major cause of Obstetric fistula.

According to UNFPA (The United Nations Population Fund,) Obstetric fistula is one of the most serious and tragic childbirth injuries. A hole between the birth canal and bladder and/or rectum, caused by prolonged, obstructed labor without access to timely, high-quality medical treatment.

It leaves women leaking urine, faeces or both, and often leads to chronic medical problems, depression, social isolation and deepening poverty.

Causes include injury during childbirth, cancer, radiation therapy and surgical complications. Depending on the size and location of the fistula, there may be foul-smelling vaginal discharge or passage of stool from the vagina.
Some such fistulas may close on their own, but most need to be repaired surgically.

In 2009, Dija released her first single “Rock Steady”, which was nominated for Best Urban/R&B Single at the 2009 Canadian Radio Music Awards
