Popular gospel singer, Frank Edwards claims his profession is not a profitable business and those, who go into it for the money, might end up getting disappointed.
Speaking with Punch, Frank said;
“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. ”
