Popular Nigerian female singer, Chidinma Ekile, who was recently rumoured to be dating Kiss Daniel, has come out to clear the air over her relationship with the Woju Crooner. According to her, she is not ready to open up about her relationship with him now.
Chidinma who hails from Imo State but grew up in Ketu, Lagos, stated that people will get to know later about any relationship going on between her and the pop singer.
In an interview with Punch, the singer talked about her sojourn into music, her plans for the future and relationship with other male singers
On Project Fame:
I was excited to be the first female to win Project Fame in 2010. During the show, I was asked if I thought a girl could win and I said yes. I didn’t want a guy to win that edition of the competition; I was rooting for either me or Yetunde to take the prize home.
At a time in her career, she had a break in music. She had this to say about that:
It is true that I have not released music for a while. I just felt the need to take a break in order to restructure and to be sure of the kind of music I should put out. I also needed to form a team after leaving Capital Hill Music.
On why she left Capital Hill Music:
Leaving Capital Hill Music was not an easy decision for me to make because we were like a family. However, change is constant and I needed to move on. I miss the friendship, the laughter and fun. I didn’t have issues with the company; my contract expired and I decided not to renew it. I have my own record company now, Fortified Music. Initially, it was not easy for me to manage all the responsibilities that came my way but things are getting better now as I have a team working with me. I am the only artiste presently signed to the label, but there are plans to sign artistes.
Chidinma also spoke on her current projects:
My new song, Love Me, was produced by Oscar. The inspiration came up when we were talking about love in the studio; it is not a personal experience. I just released the video of the song and the reception has been awesome.
She was then asked about her relationship with pop-life singer Flavour and Kiss Daniel
I was never signed to Flavour’s record company and I wasn’t in a relationship with him. However, I have been involved in some projects with him because we have a good chemistry. Working with him is fun and less stressful.
And about Kiss Daniel. I don’t like to speak about my relationship or love life in public. There is nothing to talk about me and Kiss Daniel; people can say anything they want to say. Whether I am in a relationship with him or not, everyone will get to know later. I find it weird that I am always linked to one musician or the other. At times, it takes extra effort for me to convince people that certain reports about me are untrue.
