Gospel ti take over! Few days after Nigerian Gospel artist Frank Edwards released his new album Frankincense, the album climbed to the top of the Nigerian iTunes store beating Rihanna’s “ANTI” and Beyonce’s “Lemonade”.
After two years of hard work, the 21-track album was launched on the 20th of April, 2016 and features great music ministers such as Micah Stampley, Don Moen and Nathaniel Bassey.
Frank Edwards made the announcement of the release of the album with a video documentary earlier in the month stating that the album is a worship album.
Announcing the release of the album, Mr. Anthony Chukwudi, the CEO of Honesty Music Entertainment which is marketing the album said that the album is all about Jesus and promoting the work of God.
“It is a very wonderful album. I’ve marketed a lot of gospel albums but this particular one is a very special one. It is even more special because people from the outside world are beginning to take a liking to Nigerian music and there is a huge reflection of this in this album,” he reportedly said.
Mr Chukwudi also added that we are in for a shock as “You will hear Don Moen speak Igbo language in this album.”
Frank Edwards has described Frankincense as a tool for reaching out and touching lives.
“Music is a tool for me to reach out to my generation. Frankincense is more than an album. It is a gift to God. It goes from one worship song to another. We have ballad and reggae, and what I call afro-ballad and so many other genres in it. It is a beautiful piece of work. I’m excited. I can’t wait for you to hear it,” he reportedly said.
