    Beautiful girl with real talent. Go on with ya bad self!!! On another note, the ‘other’ chydinma, if u would only leave all the socializing and showing up everywhere and actually spend time singing , you’d be doing big tinz too and move from the shadow of ‘wedding singer’.

    Congrats Chidinma, wishing you lots more.
    @ Uche: did i read your comment right? The song might not be as popular as Oliver Twist, Dami Duro etc, but it surely was popular, even kids know the song.
    About her outfit, i think she likes putting on simple styled African prints in which she’s comfortable in.
