Popular Nigerian musician, Chidinma Ekile, has opened up on the reason why she quit secular music.
The singer, who rose to fame after winning Project Fame in 2010, said she felt empty and disconnected from her source, Gist Reel gathered.
Chidinma had earlier announced in 2021 that she had become a minister of God and would no longer return to secular music.
In a YouTube video posted on Wednesday, the ‘Kedike’ crooner spoke about her decision to quit secular music, saying that she had been looking for fulfillment but couldn’t find it until she reconnected with her source (God).
In her words;
“I was looking for my fulfilment but I didn’t find it until I reconnected with my source.”
The singer also talked about how her encounter with God led her to take a different path in life, adding that she found peace and fulfillment in her new role as a minister of the gospel.
Chidinma’s decision to quit secular music was met with mixed reactions from fans and colleagues in the music industry.
While some supported her, others criticized her decision, saying that she was wasting her talent.
However, the singer appears to be content with her new path and has been using her music to spread the gospel and inspire people to connect with God.
Her latest single, ‘Jehovah Overdo,’ has been receiving positive reviews from fans and music critics alike.
