FaraiToday Exclusive: CHINGY Opens Up With An “Up, Close & Personal” Interview! [AUDIO]

Filed under : Exclusive Interview, Music

Waddup! Waddup! Waddup!


We got another exclusive for you guys….

So while Allegro is busy covering South Africa & rest of Africa for us, Nike holding it down in L.A., Tangie covering Detroit & the Midwest & new to the team, Demi doing best in New York City, I caught up with Chingy!

Yup! Chingy in the building!

I have to thank my fabulous co-host, Erika Washington, who hooked this interview up for me! You can catch up with E, Kaya, Zee & I talking up a storm on Afrotainment Television Channel , week-days, on “Point Of View”. For more on our talk-show, “Point Of View”, CLICK HERE….

So this was a fun interview to do!

For many reasons.

I had been texting back and forth with Chingy on when to do the interview. It was insane, his schedule & my schedule. But finally, we locked down on a time & day and made it work! So I ended up doing the interview during the week I was hosting one of my college besties, who was visiting with her hubby from the Bahamas AND prepping for the 2011 Afrotainment Museke Awards….*smile*

I loved Chingy for his energy & honesty! He mentioned that at one time, he did not want do music anymore! *gasp!* Artists go through that?! He also mentioned that he had gone through some personal challenges and had to step away from the game for a minute. I can respect that. I appreciated him saying that because sometimes we forget that artists are humans as well….I even went there with the alleged transvestite rumors surrounding him….

Hear what Chingy had to say on our exclusive interview:
