Hold on to your faith, stand still in faith and see God use you. Words from Nigeria born female music minister, Pastor Ehi Edwards. On her exclusive celebrity of week chat interview, with www.nGospelmedia.com Celebrity reporter, Sammy SAS.
Sammy Sas: Pls can we meet you?
Ehi Edwards: I’m Pastor Ehi Edwards of the Ejoga Family Singers.
Ehi Edwards: A music minister and a business woman. A pastor and one of the worship leaders at the Shephards House Assembly Abuja, under Rev. Dr. Joshua Talena.
Sammy Sas: Tell us about your early days growing up?
Ehi Edwards: Its was a great time. Seeing yourself in a Christian family loving God and given the opportunity to fellowship with God at an early age. It was a great job done by my parents. It went a long way in making us who we are today.
Ehi Edwards: We saw the pain of serving God, in the 80s in Zaria where churches are burnt down and you still have to go to serve God. It was the real Christianity.
Sammy Sas: Wow
Sammy Sas: So when did you realised you wanted to breakout as a solo artiste from the “Family singers” and do music professionally?
Ehi Edwards: Am not breaking out am just the leader of d group. Family Singers are all individual artist on their own. Singing together or individually as the event demands. We all write, solo and got our songs eg. Our Elder brother got his CD out alone as an individual but we all still work together. We all travel to minister as a group as well as individual artist.
Sammy Sas: You did a song with “Sammie okposo”,abi?
Ehi Edwards: Yes i did. Titled: THE BEST – You Can Download It Here. Its a song that came through the inspiration of the holy Spirit. You are made in the image of God. Therefore are best. See yourself like that and manifest the image of God in your life. Be in control, be in faith and be the best in all you do. I ended by giving God the glory for making me the best.
Ehi Edwards: I thank God for Sammie Okposo for His encouragement as one of the legend’s and a top gospel artiste in Nigeria.
Sammy Sas: So with your experience in the Gospel music, what do you think is the major challenge faced in the industry?
Ehi Edwards: Well I believe the ability to move gospel music to the world is a major challange. We have been singing in church for God and for ourselves but the world needs to be blessed by gospel music too. Let it go out to affect lives. Just like the circular music affects and influences the church too.
Sammy Sas: So on a scale of 1-10 how much do you know your culture and tradition?
Ehi Edwards: Ha ha ha. Wao. This is totally off music. Cool. I will say I know my culture to level 7. The remaining 3 is what staying in d village will teach me.
Ehi Edwards: As an Idoma lady, from Benue state we believe in culture, respect and home keeping values.
Sammy Sas: So which local meal can you prepare very well?
Ehi Edwards: Ha ha ha Well local meal from my place is Onihi and Ijangada soup. That’s Pounded yam and dry okro soup. And general native soup is Afang Soup from the south and Zabba Mengyan soup special soup from Zuru Kebbi State.
