Not many celebrities enjoy a scandal-free career, not even some who try so much to stay private.

Chidinma Ekile, the winner of the third edition of the MTN Project Fame West Africa, has had her own fair share of scandals.

In November 2013, an explicit sex tape of an unknown guy and a girl who looked so much like the singer hit the internet and many speculated it was Chidinma.

Although she never expected it, she didn’t let it faze her too much.

In an interview with Vibe.ng, Chidinma explained how she felt about the issue and other things.

She said,

I wasn’t expecting it, I mean, I knew something was going to come up sometime but not that early and definitely not something that huge but yeah, I saw it as one of those things.

I was sad. I was like, “who did this to me? who did I offend that has refused to forgive me?” I remember talking to Sound Sultan and he was like, “welcome to the industry.”

On her rise to stardom

…Music was never part of the big picture until Project Fame. I’d always seen myself as a broadcaster. I wanted to be on the radio.

I just wanted to gain some experience. I wanted to meet people because prior to that time, I was always home. I just wanted to go out and talk to new people. That was the motive behind it.

On news that she is involved with Flavour

People will think that for a very long time. Trust me, we have such a beautiful chemistry. Our working relationship is awesome. I can tell you that for a fact. It’s so beautiful and it is very stress-less. When we are in the studio, a lot of things happen. A lot of magic happens. We make magic. It’s just natural. I don’t even know where it came from.
