CPA d’Great; Nothing wrong with deciding to make only gospel songs but announcing and then talking down on all secular music is usually hypocritical. this Chidimma narrative is nothing but a Clout Chasing Venture. She made beautiful songs even as a secular artist. I wish her goodluck though. Declare Christ but leave Secular music out of it. The decision to make only gospel songs is a good one no doubt. People who toll this path usually get exhausted when they fail to get a hit gospel song. Getting a hit gospel song is not easy just as it is with the Secular songs.
Jafolay: The harvest truly is plenteous and the winning labourers are few cause many want money and fame which is fine but we just have to align our pursuit with Christ mindedness. Am very happy for her pray that God will uphold till the end
