MTN project fame 2010 winner, Chidinma has revealed a part of her early life no one is in on, at least before now – that she was born blind at birth.
The petite singer, who recently dropped a new single titled ‘Martha’ which features her mum, narrated her childhood ordeals with blindness.
Chidinma took to her instagram page to write a moving post about the news song, saying: ‘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. 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 newly born Chidinma with sight. On the 16th day I opened my eyes. And they been open ever since. I was born a very fragile baby with some health conditions. Her prayers took it all away. Today I dedicate my entire life selflessly and earnings to catering to visually impaired/blind people. Life is such a wonderful and colorful piece of art and it must feel like hell not to envision Gods creation. THE Mma Charity Foundation is my little giveback the world.’
