Nigerian Music Artiste, Chidinma Ekile, has announced her intentions to quit secular music for the Gospel genre.
In a recent turn of events, the popular music icon spoke lengthily about her decision, outlining a keen attitude to go into full time ministry.
“Our God is faithful, He never lies and He does whatever He says. So I’m here today, it’s been a long journey. I had an opportunity to spend time with Him, it’s a rare privilege to spend time with Him and He told me a lot of things and He said, He has been waiting for me. So, He is happy to receive me. God has been very intentional about me.
“He is very mindful of me. I’m not here because I want fame. I’ve had all of that and I think I’ve had enough of all of that. So, right now is the time to work for my father. He is the one who has called me, I did not bring myself here.
“As a matter of fact, I did not want to be here but I’m going into ministry in full force. So, most of you might not understand my ways because you don’t know where I’m coming from, and that is because a lot of time has been wasted. So, I need to catch up with time. I’m moving with time, there is no time.
“The enemy has been winning for too long. I’ve had my share of influence and all of that, but now I’m using all of that, everything the enemy thought he had given to me though was given to me by God, while he was lying that he gave them to me, now I’m using all of that to work for my father.
“So, when you see me doing some very extreme thing, just understand where I’m coming from, there is no time. There are too many people out there we have to bring back into the house. Jesus is coming soon, sooner than you expect. So we cannot allow them to miss out on that. Now is the time to do the work”. She said.
Chidinma, who stole the spotlight after emerging winner of Project Fame West Africa’s third season in 2010, will work alongside GUC, Mercy Chinwo and Judikay under the same record label.
She also dropped her first Gospel song ‘Jehovah Overdo’ recently which has stirred up opinions amongst her fans.
