5 Interestings Things Chidinma Revealed As She Covered Guardian Life Magazine

Chidinma Ekile a.k.a Miss Kedike is the cover star for the latest issue of Guardian Life magazine.

Since emerging winner of the 2010 MTN Projest Fame reality show, Chidinma and her soulful voice has serenaded us with hits and after hits cementing the boundless talent packaged in her petite frame.

Her recent chat with the team at Guardian life reveals some quite shocking details about her rather private life. Here are 5 of them

1. She relates with her family the same way she did before fame.

“We’re a very intimate family. Everything that happens to anyone is known to everyone. It’s still like that; I still relate with my siblings the same way I’ve always related with them. Sometimes it can be annoying when they don’t even see me as Chidinma, you know, and I have to remind them like ‘Come you people, is it not the same person you used to know.’ My sister will still be like ‘My friend what’s wrong with you? Go and bring that thing jor.’ Everything is still the same way it’s always been.”

2. Chidinma doesn’t feel intimidated by anyone

“No one can intimidate me. Absolutely no one. My father was an extremely strict man and some people would ask me sometimes if he was in the military. He taught us not to let anyone intimidate us. He was the only one that could intimidate me, only my father. He passed and then no one else.”

3. She doesn’t want to date any one in the entertainment industry

“The madness would just be too much. We can’t just both be in people’s faces. It’s impossible. Everybody is prying into our lives.”

4. Chidinma is not a feminist

“People take feminism too seriously. I don’t understand. I think that they just miss the whole thing. A lot of women have used that in the wrong way. Women have taken it to another level. They’ve even forgotten the whole meaning. If it’s about women going to school, fighting for the girl child and all those stuff, then that’s okay.”

5. She was born blind

“I was born blind. I just couldn’t see for some months. Since I sang about it, I felt the need to help kids that find themselves in such situations or even worse. So every time I travel to these places, I try to extend a hand of love to these children.”

“For some years now—I think like two years or thereabout—I’ve been using my foundation to do quite a lot of things. I’ve been able to take it to some places in Africa. The last time, I think I was in Togo and I was able to do a few things with the SOS village, I hope to do more of that.”
