Chidinma Opens Up Exclusively To Guardian Life About Being Born Blind
Chidinma Ekile is a Nigerian singer and songwriter popularly known for winning the third season of Project Fame, hit songs like Kedike and Emi Ni Baller, and more recently her lead role in the movie The Bridge.
The songbird had a chat with Guardian Life about a few things as she covers the magazine, but one part of the interview really had us talking.
Chidinma was born blind.
“I was born blind. I just couldn’t see for some months.”
However, the singer has used that experience for good.
“I felt the need to help kids that find themselves in such situations or worse. So every time I travel to these places, I try to extend a hand of love to these children.”
