Popular Nigerian gospel artist, Frank Edwards has revealed an hidden truth between the music industry and the gospel ministry in Nigeria.
Frank also recently released a new song called “Believers Anthem“.
He however explains that if one is after making the money he should not be a gospel artist as there’s no money in gospel compared to the entertainment music industry.
Read his full statement below;
“There are so many reasons. Firstly, you have to understand that the industry and ministry is not the same thing. Gospel music is a ministry, the other one is an industry, so it functions fully like that.
The gospel ministry is totally different from the secular industry even though you might say that there is a business side of it which makes it similar.
But in gospel ministry, the business aspect of it is never the focus. I tell people that if you want to make money, don’t do gospel music; you would have a lot of issues. Gospel music means one is reaching out to people through music; the others are strictly entertainment or at least 70-80 per cent entertainment.”
