Someone must have told you….Perhaps… You know, as you grow older you begin to be more comfortable in your skin; more conscious of whom you truly are.
I sort of knew there is something special about me just as anyone else out there. You must discover who you are at some point.” Speaking about her life as a married woman, Chinda, attributed its success to God. The mother of one tied the knot with Victor Tonye Corker in 2016.

I don’t like to take advantage of things. I am an organic woman. Therefore, my family comes first before my career. I do not know any other way.”
