“Emi Ni Baller”! Check out Chidinma’s Gothic Chic Cover for MyStreetz Magazine



Chidinma mystreetz

Burna Boy, Vector, Eva Alordiah and the late great Goldie have all looked stellar on the previous issues of  MyStreetz Magazine. This time around, KORA award winner, the baller herself Ms. Kedike, Chidinma takes the cover, looking like she really shouldn’t be messed with.

This is what Sesan Adeniji, the publisher of Mystreetz magazine, had to say about their eleventh issue:

“My belief about Chidinma‘s growth and success is that she is indirectly sharing the same mindset with Sheryl Sandberg, one of the most powerful women in America right now; the co-pilot of the biggest network of humans the world has ever seen which is the chief operating officer of Facebook,

Sheryl Sandberg in her latest book titled ‘Lean In’, a memoir-slash- ‘sort of feminist manifesto’ in which she encourages women to pursue their carrier with more rigor. According to this woman who runs a 66 million dollar tech company and sees it as not much of a challenge, Sandberg’s thesis is unique. Stripped of many caveat, it boils down to this, like she puts it –

‘the sisters are doing some of it to themselves. For a variety of reasons, they are not aiming high enough. They’re underestimating their abilities. They’re doing too much housework and child care, They’re compromising their career goals for partners and children- even when such partners and children do not exist’. ‘We hold ourselves back in ways both big and small, by lacking self-confidence by not raising our hands, and pulling back when we should be leaning in’ in her words.

Such feminist manifesto which drove female artistes such as Onyeka Onwenu, Funmi Adams, Stella Monye, to mention a few, to great heights, also drives Chidinma to achieve all the once unattainable things she now poses. This is why we are asking the question, Can you challenge Chidinma?”

This April edition will be out on news stands very soon.

    So Chindinma, you no wan marry or take care of kids? Na wa. A woman can get married, take care of kids and still run a million dollar company if she wants. Please you guys should not make taking care of a family seem like a barrier. It might slow you down at first, but you will still get there if you want to. #Mrs. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala.

    Nice cover by the way.

      first, chidinma didn’t say those things. it was Sesan quoting from Sandberg and secondly, Sandberg didn’t say that also. in fact I think its the other way around. I think what Sandberg said was that some women underestimate their capabilities. this means that they can do more if or when they want to. like Okonjo-Iweala that you mentioned

      You beat me to the punch! I was going to say the same thing as well. Nigerians love to use term they don’t understand just to appear knowledgeable about thing they don’t know one thing about at all. This is no where close to Goth.

    I had an interview with Chidinma’s stylist ‘Jane Michael’ and what surprises me the most is how she delivers. She said she’s usually given less than 48hrs notification. Most stylist can’t do dat. I really love her humility too.
