According to recents report online, Chidinma Ekile said that she went on a three-month retreat to hear from God, praying and fasting on a mountaintop.

She claimed to have taken a break from everything, including social media, to focus solely on God.

“The whole journey wasn’t easy, while on the retreat, it was a lot of work, at some point, I was tired and wanted to run away, it was overwhelming…The spiritual exercise made me know it was time because I didn’t want to do it without God.

I didn’t have a phone with me that period, I will go up to the mountain top praying and in one of those times i got tired and started hearing voices and the one that was clear to me at the time was the one that told me to jump of the cliff in the middle of the night, I moved closer and closer to the cliff, I thought I was going to jump but there was something holding me back….I already stretched out my arms to jump, but I then felt a barricade which naturally wasn’t there…these were some of the encounters that made me know it was time”

Chidinma explained why she didn’t jump into secular music right away that after winning the Project Fame reality show

“After the competition, I was still in church but had to do secular music to take care of family and other things and i also wanted to be fully convinced and told by God to move. It is about God and not about me anymore, i now pray about every move, step, i let direct everything.”

Chidinma spoke about her relationships with some of her colleagues and fans in the music industry

“When transitioning i wasn’t bothered about losing my secular music fans, I didn’t care…My conversations with my secular colleagues have changed, some might think I am now no longer approachable….some of them understand and respect the boundaries but do not totally shut you out….”
