The decision to dump secular music for gospel sound may not have been well received by many of her fans, but there is no going back for singer, Chidinma Ekile, who said she has embraced her new calling and nothing is going to change about it.
Chidinma said she knew that she was stepping into a different terrain where many people expected her to make an instant impression, but the joy of using her music talent to glorify God in a new way and draw people to his vineyard kept her going even stronger.
Speaking about the turnaround that has greeted her life since she made the move into gospel music industry in 2021, Chidinma, who marked her second year since she changed to being a gospel music artiste, said God has been her source of strength and her whole life will not exist without God being in the middle of it.
The Kedike singer, who won the Season 3 of Project Fame West Africa as a secular artiste, said the gospel of Jesus Christ is the answer to every problem in the world today, adding that it is the gospel now, forever until eternity.
The singer said there was no point contemplating going back to secular music as that chapter of her life closed when she met God and changed her life forever.
Chidinma disclosed that despite all she achieved in music, particularly the success stories that trailed her career for some years, “there was this emptiness that I felt”.
“God is my source and there is no way I will be able to do anything outside of him. There is always a vacuum in the life of every man that only God can fill. Everything begins to make sense the moment you find your way back to your source. I am a testimony to how God can touch your life and how quick your life can turn around,” she said.
