“You too dey bless me ohhh, Oghene doh, Mma mma”…these heart-warming, God-praising songs are easily recognisable because of the passion and clarity with which they are delivered. Song after song, ministration after ministration, Frank Edwards continues to blaze the trail for other gospel music artistes to follow.
This young man may not appear imposing at first glance; one might actually overlook him, but that status quo never lingers long, not after those melodious, soul-searching notes erupt from within. Since his first album ‘The Definition’ was released in 2008, Frank has remained true to his path; gospel rock music through and through. He is definitely one of the most sought after gospel artistes in Nigeria, and awards certainly trail his every album. Frank has performed with leading names in the Nigerian gospel scene like Sinach and international gospel acts like Micah Stampley.
The singer, pianist, and ‘Oga at the Top’ of Rocktown Records was born 22nd July. He was introduced to musical instruments early in life by his father, and by the age of ten, Frank was firmly on his way as a singer and songwriter extraordinaire. His discography includes Angels on the Runway, his second album released in 2010, Unlimited in 2011 and a new album, Blow my Mind which is due in 2013 plus several singles.
Frank was the winner of the Rock Artist of the Year 2010 at the Nigerian Gospel Awards. In 2012, he was recognised as one of Africa’s best gospel artists when he won the Best Gospel Artist West Africa Award at the African Gospel Awards; an amazing feat. He received six nominations at the Nigerian Gospel Awards that same year. A $10,000 prize was his for the taking at the Loveworld Awards for the Hit Song of the Year 2012.
With only seven years of making soul-lifting, earth-shaking gospel music, Frank Edwards is an icon dedicated to producing some of the best gospel music this side of Africa.
