Nigerian High Profile Gospel & RockTown Boss Frank Edwards in an interview with punch said there is no money in the gospel ministry (As it is called) rather it’s a way of preaching the gospel.
“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. ”
