Andrea Chika Chukwu, Nollywood actress-come-singing-sensation simply known as CHICA (an acronym coined from her full name) has made a return to the music world with the release of her latest single “Music From The Soul” from the album Live Love Leap. The album promises a fusion of neo-soul and pop music feel in its entirety with the list including singles like ‘Beautiful’, “Rockin’ my Freedom” and “Music from the Soul” which Chica introduced to us with the first video from the album, which was produced/directed by Stacey Holman and shot in New York.
“I wanted to project that feeling of calmness and classy look that New York represents.” said the actress who is famously known as Jumoke for her role in the popular sitcom Fuji House of Commotion.
“It’s been a solo journey i.e. I have been responsible for the financing so far, I had a very good team to work with and I am proud of the work I have,” the actress added, speaking of her solo debut.
“Music from the Soul” is a neo-soul, jazzy song jointly written by the singer/actress and singer Aramide, produced by E.Kelly and the video was shot in New York.
Rocking My Freedom on the other hand is more of an 80s’ pop song geared at staying happy, bubbly and cheerful no matter what life throws ones way, while “Beautiful” plays on the jazzy much more soulful side of Chica’s voice.
Chica is a hardworking and talented woman of many talents. The singer/actress says that she draws her inspiration from great women and artistes who have for generations entertained, done it well and succeeded at it.
Her first foray into music happened whilst she was studying for her A-Levels, miming songs from Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston under her then stage name ‘Andrave’. Following her professional debut singing with Eedris Abdulkreem, she also played with the late Sammie Needle’s band, Chica first made her solo attempt in music on the soundtrack for Jeta Amata’s movie titled Tears of a Woman.
With outstanding parts in some of the most popular Nollywood productions of the recent years, Kunle Afolanya’s Phone Swap, Rita Dominic and Mlidred Okwo’s The Meeting, Uche Jombo’s Unconditional & UnderYourSkin, and Omoni Oboli’s Being Mrs Elliot, to name a few, whilst Chica has built a successful career in film, her return to music is sure to show fans a more versatile side to the talented artiste.
