November 12, 2016 – Chidinma Okeke’s Mother: My Daughter May Commit Suicide Soon, Watching Her Video Broke My Heart
Hear what Mrs Okeke told Razzle Dazzle in a recent interview about the ordeal of her daughter, dethroned Beauty Queen Chidinma Okeke.
As a mother watching my daughter’s video broke my heart but I have stopped crying and committed everything to the hands of God who always fight my battle.
When I spoke with my daughter, I asked her what led her into such an unholy act despite the fact that I brought her up in a Godly way,” Okeke said in tears.
Chidinma stated: ‘Mummy even if I did it, I didn’t know when it was done honestly, I’m surprised and confused. I don’t know what happened mummy’.
On whether or not the family supported Chidinma to participate in the pageant, the mother recalled:
“Chidimma came home to say she was going to take part in Miss Anambra Pageant and I discouraged her; I told her to use her beauty for God. She went back to school and returned later to say she has been selected among the final contestants.
I can never support any of my children to take part in any beauty pageant because we are a Christian family and don’t have liking for such things. Chidimma went into the pageant without our knowledge but she is a little girl and we cannot abandon her; she remains my little baby and the baby of the house. When she won, it was her sister that called to tell us. She is my last child and came seven years after my sixth child.”
“Chidimma was simply a pawn in the hands of both the organisers of Miss Anambra and her former manager hence things went awry when she decided to free herself from the bondage.”
“The entire controversy affected my daughter because when I went to see her, she had emaciated so much and not looking after herself at all, when I asked her why her hair was so unkempt, she said, ‘Mummy leave that hair alone, that’s not my worry.’
My prayer is that they should not kill my daughter.
