For a celebrity of her calibre,  one would think she might enjoy seeing herself on the screens but that is not so.

Chioma explained that apart from her voice sounding funny to her, she did not watch her own movies because she didnt like the idea of criticizing herself.

Speaking in an interview on Ghanaian radio station, Hitz FM, Chioma added that she sometimes watched her movies not for entertainment purposes but watched with the aim of learning from her movies.

“I don’t like to see myself; I hate to hear my voice that is why I’m not even wearing the headphones [in the studio]. I feel I sound funny.

“I watch them not to entertainment myself but…I hate criticizing myself. I’m never enough; I just feel that way so I go back and still work…,” she told Andy Dosty on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM.
