Many people who have been following the music career of Nigerian Afro-pop singer and songwriter, Chidinma Ekeli, were surprised at her decision to quit singing secular music where she held sway for many years.
As one of the female Nigerian singers who rocked the airwaves with popular songs such as Fall in Love, Kedike, Jankoliko among others, Chidinma confirmed that she has now become a minister of Christ and would love to be addressed as such.
Her music career started fully when she won the 2010 edition of the Project Fame West Africa and it was followed by a new recording with the Goretti company, owned by rapper illbliss and music video director, Clarence Peters.
The singer in the last few years have been silent in the music industry with many people suggesting that she was planning to settle down and build a family with her man, but that has turned out to be untrue with the ‘Miss Kedike’ singer declaring that she has now become a gospel singer.
She was rumoured to be dating highlife singer, Flavour, at some point and much later news filtered in that she was keeping a relationship with Kizz Daniel but nothing of such happened, according to her.
Chidinma who clocked 30 on Sunday noted she is now a “crusader of the gospel of Jesus” even as she released a single ‘Jehovah Overdo’ to mark her rebranding.
Her rebranding process begun weeks back as she deleted all the previous posts that could link her to being a secular artist.
“My name is Minister Chidinma Ekile. I’m a crusader of the gospel of Jesus. I’m a crusader of the gospel of Jesus Christ,” she wrote. While also thanking God for another year of life,” she wrote on Instagram.
