History was made on 25 September, 2010, when 22-year-old Chidinma Ekile emerged the first female winner of the television reality musical talent hunt show, MTN Project Fame West Africa. The Imo State native was dubbed the surprise act of the competition as a result of her superlative performances week after week. X2 had a chat with the petite singer at a recent event in Lagos.

What was the feeling like for you when you were announced winner?

When I saw the crowd I was like ‘is this real?’ I’ve been dreaming of a day like this.

When we were three left, I was like ‘God I hope I win this’. I also pictured myself in a situation of what if I don’t win? To God be the glory I won.

Were you encouraged to enter for the competition?

A friend of mine told me about Project Fame and brought the form to my house and I filled it in faith. I was like ‘I will just go there and do my best’. It wasn’t easy; we had to go through series of auditions after facing the judges, there were still yet another set of judges we did not see. It was just favour.

What do you think was your strength in the house?

It has always been my voice and I just used it the best I could.

Did you have any low moments in the house for you?

At the start when I was given songs that were not my kind, the low pitched songs, I was scared and thought I won’t go far.

So what songs shot you up?

I think it was just God. The one song that shot me up was during our reggae week, ‘Weeping and Wailing’ by Mighty Diamonds. God is my confidence I never do anything by my power before I get on stage I learn my song and pray to God to help me.
