Chidinma Ekile, one of Nigeria’s most talented pop stars took music to another level when she featured her mum, Mrs Martha Ekile, in a new song dedicated to her. The song ‘Martha’ had the mum doing the intro while Chidinma picked it up from there.
However the petite singer couldn’t hide her excitement over the whole thing as she took to her Instagram page to express her feelings: “The song ‘Martha’ is dedicated to my mother, Mrs Martha Ekile. I decided to show my fans a different side to Chidinma, a side never revealed to so many, a side I will forever remain grateful and indebted to Father Lord for his miraculous interventions and guidance in my life,” she wrote.
“I was conceived and certified totally blind at birth. For fifteen nights this woman held me in her hands and wept uncontrollably, with my father calling on God to bless the newly born, Chidinma with sight. On the sixteenth day I opened my eyes and they have been opened ever since.
I was born a very fragile baby with some health conditions. Her prayers took it all away. Life is such a wonderful and colourful piece of art and it must feel like hell not to envision God’s creation” she added.
