A lot of music backups for singers, I can't mention which now. I did the last election and 2nd tenor song for Edo State Government election campaign jingle,...Backup for movies n drama,including life, n more...will tell you the rest as we go on.
 
 
That's a lot. However, what are your latest known projects?
 
MTN PROJECT FAME MELODY CHIDIEBERE Melody Gabriel
 
Nigerian Idol and MTN Project Fame
 
 
Oh... Those are definitely famed projects. What were your experiences in these projects?
 
MTN PROJECT FAME MELODY CHIDIEBERE Melody Gabriel
 
I experienced a lot in Nigerian idol and MTN Project Fame..To be focused as a singer,ready at all times,inspirational, good example,serious,stable,fight for what u believe in, discipline, above all to continue to rely on God and more..
 
 
That is interesting. Now, let's take a look at your performance at the Project Fame.
When you performed the Wizkid Tease Me, you seemed have gotten well into it. Does this have anything to with your type of genre? What made it so?
 
MTN PROJECT FAME MELODY CHIDIEBERE Melody Gabriel
 
Ok..haha..I do all genre..but I am more of a soul and R & B singer..
 
 
Which would you say you enjoyed more in these performance? UNCONDITIONALLY BY KATTY or TEASE ME BY WIZ KID?
 
MTN PROJECT FAME MELODY CHIDIEBERE Melody Gabriel
 
Lol..I enjoyed both..there was no difference in any.One had to do with more of choreography,which Ms Kaffy the Dance Queen put me through. It was fun working with her.
 
 
What do you intend to do with the experiences garnered from Nigerian Idol and MTN Project Fame?
 
MTN PROJECT FAME MELODY CHIDIEBERE Melody Gabriel
 
Move forward 'musically'...
 
 
What should we be expecting from you soon?
 
MTN PROJECT FAME MELODY CHIDIEBERE Melody Gabriel
 
My new single or singles...
 
 
Do you want to tell us about it?
 
MTN PROJECT FAME MELODY CHIDIEBERE Melody Gabriel
 

 

 

 

 

I'm just trying to make a perfect song, a good one that people can play at every season..and not one that would be played for a particular time and forgotten. No, I want to create an everlasting song..that will also affect the public positively.
 
 
Oh... Really? In that respect, who is your role model in the music industry?
 
MTN PROJECT FAME MELODY CHIDIEBERE Melody Gabriel
 
A lot..In Africa, Amongst others are Tuface Idibia,Omawumi, Waje, Tiwa, Shey Shey, Don Jazzy, D'bang, Wizzy wizzy, Davido... Outside Whitney Houston, Jennifer Huston, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey,Adele, Beyonce, R Kelly, Usher, Chris brown, and so on.
 
 
 
What challenges have you seen confronting upcoming artists in Nigeria?
 
MTN PROJECT FAME MELODY CHIDIEBERE Melody Gabriel
 
''Capital'' You need to have the capital..There is a lot of ''Competition''..You just have to come out with something different,to be the best in what you do,and for you to stand out.
 
 
Away from music, what are your turn offs with men?
 
MTN PROJECT FAME MELODY CHIDIEBERE Melody Gabriel
 
Snobbish, proud, arrogant, vain personalities
 
 
This might sound funny. But as a growing talent, will you be comfortable marrying a fellow star? Especially considering your experiences so far.
 
MTN PROJECT FAME MELODY CHIDIEBERE Melody Gabriel
 
Its all about Love..Where you find love
 
 
The entertainment industry is replete with stories of failed marriages even when love was projected. So don't you consider these?
 
MTN PROJECT FAME MELODY CHIDIEBERE Melody Gabriel
 
Yeah, its a serious matter..I just think it takes two understanding people, and people who love each other..if its ordained by God, it would definitely work..its for a woman to respect and regard her husband as being the head. And for a man to listen to his wife,understand her and love her. So both of them should support each other..
 
In your probation performance, one of the judges said: "you look gorgeous, you look beautiful..." Do you concur?
 
MTN PROJECT FAME MELODY CHIDIEBERE Melody Gabriel
 
Of course dear..I knew that since I was 8..lol..
 
 
With that pronouncement, lots of men would want to spin their heads and give it a shot at you, with something serious. What will you say, are you available or you have been taken?
 
MTN PROJECT FAME MELODY CHIDIEBERE Melody Gabriel
 
I am single and not searching..
 
 
But for any serious dude out there who is single but searching, are you available?
 
MTN PROJECT FAME MELODY CHIDIEBERE Melody Gabriel
 
Hahaha
(After a long pause)
So what say you?
 
MTN PROJECT FAME MELODY CHIDIEBERE Melody Gabriel
 
I am not searching
 
 
Hopefully we'd get an answer to that question next time
 
When you aren't working, how do you relax?
 
MTN PROJECT FAME MELODY CHIDIEBERE Melody Gabriel
 
Indoors watching TV, sleeping/resting,reading,thinking/planning my next move,sometimes go out with family,friends and loved ones
 
 
Imagine you were married, and you had just one lifebuoy to give out between your husband and your mother, in a ship that is capsizing in the middle of a sea, who would you give it to?
 
MTN PROJECT FAME MELODY CHIDIEBERE Melody Gabriel
 
This is In two parts,..Part 1, I will save my mother because,she gave birth to me,nurtured me,and showed me an unconditional love,and i can have another husband,but I can't have another mother..Part 2, I would save my husband because my mother somehow has eventually lived all her life,she has also seen all the beautiful and bad moments of life. So my husband should..And my mother would definitely want me to save my husband which I wouldn't want to do because I love them both dearly..so there is no answer to that question...lol
 
 
Any last words to your fans out there?
 
MTN PROJECT FAME MELODY CHIDIEBERE Melody Gabriel
 
I want to say a big thank you to all my fans foryour love and support in my life in general..I love you all..Don't forget, your support makes me stronger, your love makes me better and your prayers makes me greater..Don't stop supporting, loving and believing..Don't stop believing in what you believe in,stay focused and stay blessed! Love you bunch!
 
 
Thank you too for availing us your time, although you are really a busy person. We hope you'd oblige us again in the future.
 
MTN PROJECT FAME MELODY CHIDIEBERE Melody Gabriel
