Singer Chidinma Ekile better known as Chidinma has revealed her battle with blindness as an infant.

The third MTN Project Fame West Africa winner recently released her new song, MARTHA, which she dedicated to her mother.

According to her: “The song MARTHA is dedicated to my mother, Mrs. Martha Ekile. I DECIDED To show my fans a different side of Chidinma, a side never revealed to so many, a side I will forever remain grateful and indebted to Father Lord for His miraculous interventions and guidance in my life.

“I was conceived and certified totally Blind at birth. For fifteen nights, this woman held me in her hands and wept uncontrollably, with my father calling on God to bless newly born Chidinma with sight…. On the 16th day I opened my eyes…. And they have been open ever since.. I was born a very fragile baby with some health conditions. Her prayers took it all away. Today I dedicate my entire life selflessly and earnings to catering to visually impaired/blind people.

“Life is such a wonderful and colorful piece of art and it must feel like hell not to envision Gods creation. THE Mma Charity Foundation is my little give back to the world.”
