Why I Once Prayed. Fasted For Three Month – Chidinma Ekile

Singer Chidinma Ekile has recounted how she made the decision to switch from secular music to gospel music.

In a chat shared by Nations Scoop, Chidinma Ekile also revealed why she decided to take a break from social media.

The singer revealed that she spent three month on a mountain, fasting and praying just to hear from 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 realize 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”

On why she didn’t immediately delve into secular music after winning the project fame reality show, Chidinma said “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.”

On her relationship with some of her colleagues, fans in the music industry, Chidinma said “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 ”
