Nigerian Singer ChiDynma D’Voice is now “Chee” – New Look, New Sound | Check Out Her New Promo Shots



The singer formerly known as ChiDynma D’Voice is re-branded, re-energized and Chee is ready to go!

Chidinma Okebalama first came into our lives with the music video to her single “Obimmo” back in 2011. And, ever since then, she went on quite a hiatus from the scene ‘to regroup and wait for the perfect moment for a return’.

“Having the right label or management, working with the right producer and just generally being in the right mindset are critical to having a successful career. I felt I needed to pause and put all the necessary structures in place before I moved on with my career. As life may have it this process has taken close to 2 years”

But, she wasn’t too far away from the limelight as she continued to hone her stagecraft by performing at high profile events and weddings such as The CAF Awards and most recently, the Mid term dinner for President Goodluck Jonathan’s Transformation Team in June 2013.

It was off these feats that she got herself a GLO endorsement back in May 2013 and is ready to make a solid comeback under her own record label imprint, Republic of Chee.

“With months of tireless work in the studio, Chee is now more than ever ready to go. She will be officially announcing her return to the mainstream music scene with a new single aptly titled “A Nom Ebea” an Igbo phrase, which translates to “I Am Here”. The single is scheduled for release on Tuesday, July 8th 2013.”

The single is produced by Burna Boy‘s only producer, LeriQ.

    This girl that has more names than singles. She needs to bring music to our ears and less of all these stage names.
    Besides, when is this trend of photo shoots going to end?
    She does have a good voice though.

      Dear friend, these sentences were in the article: She will be officially announcing her return to the mainstream music scene with a new single aptly titled “A Nom Ebea” an Igbo phrase, which translates to “I Am Here”. The single is scheduled for release on Tuesday, July 8th 2013.”

      Did you see where i noted that she has had more stage names than singles? How does that statement detract from her releasing a new single?

    I loved Obimuo and she’s such a cutie too.

    In my opinion, the hair overwhelms her fine features. As per her musical talent or the lack thereof, July 8th is just around the corner.

    I think we should hear the music first before seeing any more pics. Its been a very long while she released anything. She is known for just one single, I will like to be sure that this chee is not a one hit wonder! She is pretty though!
