11 November 2014, 14:35

Lagos - Singer Chidinma Ekile featuring her mother –Martha Ekile – in a heart-warming single single titled Martha

Chidinma sings about the uniqueness of a  mother’s love.

The song which she dedicates to her mother  is to show her appreciation because when she was certified totally blind at birth, and for fifteen nights her mother 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, Chidinma says she opened her eyes because of her  mothers.

The singer also revealed that she was starting a foundation called the THE Mma Charity Foundation for the visually impaired.

Listen to song HERE

The song MARTHA is dedicated to my mother Mrs Martha Ekile. I DECIDED To show my fans a different side to 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 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 giveback the world @illblisstheboss @jiggleron @selinamass @rosemariah_78 @thasuspect @toolzo @do2dtun @djspinall @officialpraiz @mariaokan @mtnng @giftedhands_5050 @tokemakinwa @olorisupergal @janemichaelnig
