After twelve years of living in the United States, she returned to Nigeria at her father’s request. This decision didn’t go down well with her because she already had a stable life in the United States. A month after Chigul’s return to Nigeria, she lost her father.

Chigul had a natural talent for singing and acting but never for comedy. Comedy just happened to her. It was never intended. She creates amusing voice notes and sends them to her friends. Her friends would listen, laugh, and then delete the voice message. Then she performed a voice note that went viral on social media. That voice note signalled the start of her journey to stardom and fame.

She began as a singer under the name C-Flow, but this has been absorbed by her characters, the most prominent of which is Chigul. Chigul has a heavy Igbo accent.
