Her musical journey is nothing but a testimony to God’s everlasting providence in her life. A British born Nigerian singer – songwriter, Chica Michelle demonstrated her passion for singing at a very young age and has not stopped ever since.
In the early 2000, she worked with state radio stations in Nigeria, top radios DJ’s and entrepreneurs develop promotional jingles which made her a sought after artist of her time. Chica took a long break from music to raise her two beautiful children.
She expresses her undying love for God through her music.
Sharing the testimony behind her debut single titled ”Give Him Praises”, Chica said ”I was at this stage in my life where I strongly believed challenges were obstacles rather than tools that can mould and shape your destiny. I believe now that part of my growth and maturity relies on how I handle the effects of those challenges. My struggles and how I dealt with them made my journey extremely difficult because I was relying on my own strength and capabilities. It became evident afterwards that without the grace of God, who is the Giver of all good gifts, I could not do anything that I would find satisfactory. So I learnt to relinquish total control to God and allow Him to guide my steps.
I met Seyi Ademiju, my producer, to discuss my music project. The plan was to work on a worship song I wrote in 1996, but that changed when he made me listen to a beat. I was hit with the words right there at that moment and all I did was sing without a hitch….praise him cos am thankful. It felt right to praise Him first because God has done an an amazing job at being patient with me. He could have given up on me but on the contrary He did not. I owe Him too much and since praise is all He can take in appreciation for His Love then I will give Him praises”. – Chica Michelle
