MTN Project Fame first female winner, petite beauty Chidinma Ekile has not only won the hearts of music lovers with her soulful, danceable songs, she has a drove of suitors and admirers, waiting and anticipating, to pounce, should the pretty diva pull off the ‘stop’ sign. But Chidinma told Potpourri at an event recently that she isn’t ready to give up her life 24/7 to any man to do as he wants.
“It’s not yet time for marriage, I still have quite a lot to do and I still have a lot of money to make“, she said. Chidinma is only 23 but then she has done virtually all there is for a woman to do. She is one of the most sought-after female artistes in Nigeria, just as she is also the most courted. Artistes and non-artistes alike have openly professed love for the Imo State-born diva, with no one actually getting beyond the ground floor, or is there?
She was even recently alleged to be dating the prolific video director, Clarence Peters but the talented Kedike crooner labeled the rumour unfounded and told Potpourri it is not true. “The story is not true. Funny enough, he is not the only man I have been alleged to be dating”, she said.
Recall that Chidinma and Clarence Peters were spotted together at the MAMA’s awards held in South Africa as the duo, were seen holding hands at Durban Mall, South Africa. They also walked to the MAMA’s red carpet holding each other’s hands and sat side by side during the event. This has raised lots of speculations that the two had become an item as lovers.
Interestingly, this is not the only man to have been alleged to have rocked the tender heart of this young singer. The romance between Prince Charming of Soundcity, Adams and Chidinma has been on the lips of many. There were also reports that NURTW boss, MC Oluomo had a sizzling secret romance with her. The rumour was given flight when MC Oluomo splashed N100,000 on her on stage while performing in one of Pasuma concerts.
