Celebrated singer Chidinma who refers to herself as Mummy GO and end-time soldier has opened up on her decision to ditch secular music for gospel songs. 

The artist who attained fame following her success at music reality show Project Fame said she wants to use all of her talents to work for her “father who is in heaven.”

The news of her new path made the rounds on social media last weekend when she made the announcement of her conversion herself.

“My name is Minister Chidinma Ekile. I’m a crusader of the gospel of Jesus Christ,” she had announced on her reborn Instagram page on Sunday.

“Our God is faithful, He never lies and He does whatever He says. So I’m here today, it’s been a long journey.

“I had an opportunity to spend time with Him, it’s a rare privilege to spend time with Him and He told me a lot of things and He said, He has been waiting for me.

“So, He is happy to receive me. God has been very intentional about me.

“He is very mindful of me. I’m not here because I want fame. I’ve had all of that and I think I’ve had enough of all of that.

“So, right now is the time to work for my father. He is the one who has called me. I did not bring myself here,” the talented songstress who started out as a chorister at a local Foursquare Church in Lagos said.

“As a matter of fact, I did not want to be here but I’m going into ministry in full force.

“So, most of you might not understand my ways because you don’t know where I’m coming from, and that is because a lot of time has been wasted.

“So, I need to catch up with time. I’m moving with time, there is no time,” she added.

Chidinma said further: “The enemy has been winning for too long. I’ve had my share of influence and all of that, but now I’m using all of that, everything the enemy thought he had given to me though was given to me by God, while he was lying that he gave them to me, now I’m using all of that to work for my father.”

“So, when you see me doing some very extreme thing, just understand where I’m coming from, there is no time. There are too many people out there we have to bring back into the house.

“Jesus is coming soon, sooner than you expect. So we cannot allow them to miss out on that. Now is the time to do the work,” she said.

Chidinma is currently signed on with the Eezee concept and has released her first gospel song titled: “Jehovah overdo”.
