Ghanaian inspirational gospel minister, songwriter and recording artiste Edith Maafo is set to launch her debut album titled “Bigger Better Greater” on Sunday August 11, 2019 at the ICGC Open Heavens temple at East Legon, Adgriganor, Accra.
The album which has 10 songs including “I Overcome” will in no doubt resonate with those going through very challenging times in their lives. Edith, herself, has overcome great adversity: the death of her father at a very tender age and the loss of her only brother through inexplicable circumstances; a blow that was a setback emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
The much-anticipated launch which is expected to draw many people from far and near will feature renowned gospel artistes like Cwesi Oteng, Koda and other great ministers of gospel music.
With her first single “Jehovah” released in August, 2018, Edith uses scriptural based songs to encourage, inspire and witness for Christ and certainly, her debut album “Bigger, Better, Greater is one to look out for.
Edith comes from a family line of church choristers so singing has always been her most treasured gift.
At the tender age of ten, she became a member of the Calvary Methodist Church Junior Choir in Accra. She later joined the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) as a young soloist ministering heartfelt gospel songs at the youth ministry.
For a very long time, Ghana Gospel has been waiting for our very own “Sinach”, “Cece Winans” or “Niclole Mullin” and with Edith Maafo’s “Bigger Better Greater” album, that Gospel minister has arrived indeed with a lot of experience, versatility to live up to expectation. Her vocal dexterity is simply timeless.
Edith Maafo has performed in crusades and church conventions across the United Kingdom. She now back at the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) – Christ Temple in Accra where she’s currently one of the lead soloists.
The album is blessed with songs like “Lead me Lord” a hymn that will highlight Edith’s song writing ability. The song epitomizes Edith’s recording voice and style of music that has endeared her to many fans in UK and growing fan base in Ghana.
“That says the word of God” and “Child of God” will resonate amongst the youth of today who prefer fast, danceable songs and also shows Edith’s versatility.
