Popular gospel singer, Frank Edwards says he had no idea he would be famous. The Artist was one of the gospel artistes who have performed at many editions of The Experience music concert in Lagos.

In a chat with Saturday Beats, the artiste said he never imagined that he would get to the current height in his career.

“I never planned for this; I had no idea it would be like this. Some things would happen to some people and they would say it was dream come true.  In my own case, I didn’t even have any dream. I just wanted to make music for people around me to listen to. I just wanted to do what I loved and I was okay if it was just one person that would tell me my music touched his soul. God decided to bless me and take my music all over the world, I am grateful for it.”

Edwards believes that gospel music is a ministry and it is not an industry.

“If you are a gospel minister, you have to know you are in a ministry. If you are in it for the money, you may be disappointed. It is not that you will not make money in the long run but that is not the focus, the focus is to preach the gospel of music through your music. When your focus is to first do something that would sell, you would lose focus. If you want to do it for the business, then try secular music. You need to be called to be a gospel artiste because you would have to endure when the money is not coming and you have to wait on the Lord and learn to use your faith. You would even be popular and you would still be climbing bikes.”

Having released a number of albums since he started his career, Edwards said it didn’t come easy.

“It is a lot of hard work to release songs back to back. I produce my music and I travel for events. I come back and I head back to the studio. It means I work round the clock. It is a lot of energy.”

Talking about his experience being a part of The Experience 12, the artiste said it has been an opportunity for him to reach out to the people.

 “I reach out to a larger audience with the message of Christ in my music. I also see it as a time to mingle with my brothers and sisters from all around the world. It is always a fun time with the Lord.”

Meanwhile, The Experience concert that held in Lagos last weekend was highly successful as the TBS where it held was filled to the brim.

Talking about the concert, the convener and pastor of the House on the Rock Church, Paul Adefarasin, said the main purpose of the event was to ensure that every participant would have a close-up and personal life-changing encounter with God.
