Accclaimed Kedike singer, Chidinma can’t seem to get Yemi Alade out of her hairs. She has been accused of copying the Johnny singer’s hairstyle in September this year.
Now she’s been accused of being threatened of her position in the music industry by the same Yemi Alade again! In a chat with SoundCity FM’s Moet Abebe yesterday, the OAP asked if she was threatened by Yemi Alade taking the ‘African Princess’ spot which she had seemingly enjoyed up till Yemi’s entry. Chidinma’s response was cool and calculated. Hear her: “Well, I never get threatened by anything…hmmm, because I do not put myself in a situation where i feel like am in a competition”.
Celeb Police investigations reveal these accusations may actually hold some water owing to the history between these Afro Pop singers. Although the two have actually done a collabo on the track titled Selense, the similarity of their craft and fashion sense always seem to create room for speculation.
Both have won international awards ( Chidinma with a KORA and Yemi with a MTV’s MAMA);
They have shared the same hair styles;
Chidinma is an Ibo girl repping for Lagos;
Yemi flaunts herself as the Yoruba-Ibo girl;
And then this: Alongside lots of loved-up photos on the cyber space, Chidinma has actually kissed Flavour live in the video for their collaboration on the song titled Ololufe. On the other hand, in an interview with Ade Laoye on Accelerate TV, the MTV Africa Music Awards winner declared her love for same high-life singer, Flavour, stating that her top wish would be that he also falls in love with her in return. Talk about two women gunning for the love of one man!
The ultimate threat to Chidinma in this battle for supremacy may yet be in the title of Yemi Alade’s latest album, Mama Africa. The dig is on. The die is cast. Yemi is reaching for Africa. What will Chidinma do?
