    this girl seems to have more names than songs. One minute she is Chidinma, the next Chydnma, the next Chee, the next The Voice. Make up your mind for once.

    • hmm

      She should have just used her first intial and then lastname as stage name. C. okebalama, or just Dynma. I too am tired of her name change she really needs to stick to one

    Idak I didnt even know who CHEE was until I read ur comment. Rolling on the ground. She didnt even have the decency to send out a press release with her new name. Guess Miss Kedike Chidinma overshadowed her. Lol

    I love Seyi Shay..the girl is blowing up in the music industry. Cant wait for more female acts to make it in the industry

  25. Nice Anon

    June 19, 2013 at 4:14 am

    Lol what kinda name is Chee?

  26. Alero

    June 19, 2013 at 9:12 am

    What kind of celebration of women is this? When most of the most respected women are not even in attendance? Where are the Omotola’s? The okonjo iwealas, where are the chinamanda’s? I expect that if youre presenting a Dionne Warwick , you would bring people with integrity. Even in the music industry like an Onyeka onwenu. etc… This just looks childish and trashy to me sorry!

  27. Alero

    June 19, 2013 at 9:14 am

    And seeing her( Dionne) sit alone in that Coner isn’t a good look either. We need to organise things with objectives in mind. My 1 cent. Make una no vex o
