Award Winning Artiste, Frank Edwards took to his Instagram page to share the touching story. He said

You see this here it’s called okpa. My  mum was making it and we were both selling it , this was my breakfast and dinner everyday… The process of making it was ridiculous.. my mom used fire wood and I was the one fanning the fire because kerosene was luxury.. So I had smoke entering my eyes 5 hours everyday for over 10 years except Sundays, my eyes were always Red until it became permanent  then I started having eye problem cus I was always rubbing my eyes with dirty hands trying to clear the smoke.. Cus I didn’t understand why my vision was blurred ,, my mum had same issue too with her eyes,, regardless we still hit the road to sell , BUT GUESS WHAT THAT WAS WHEN I DEVELOPED A STRONG & NATURAL BUSINESS MINDSET, I KNEW A LOT ABOUT MONEY EARLY , I KNEW HOW TO CONVINCE PEOPLE TO BUY, I KNEW THAT SMOKE IS NOT STRONG ENOUGH TO STOP ME, I KNEW THE ONES THAT BUY ON CREDIT AND NEVER PAY SO I ONLY GO TO THEM  WHEN THE MARKET IS SO BAD .. BECAUSE ITS BETTER TO SELL ON CREDIT THAN TO HAVE IT SPOIL.. WHAT YOU ARE GOING THROUGH TODAY IS TRAINING , THOUGH IT MAY LOOK LIKE SUFFERING BUT ITS TRAINING , DONT LOOK FOR EASY WAY OUT , GO THROUGH IT AND COME OUT TOUGHER!!! though today I have permanent red eyes to the point when some ppl see me they ask “Do you smoke” I’m like God forbid!😀 sometimes it hurts , most times I laugh because I’m like. . “ IF ONLY YOU KNOW “  but how ever I am a happy man and I have enough pages in my book of testimony to encourage my children.  GO THROUGH IT AND ADD PAGES TO YOUR TESTIMONY BOOK!  BECAUSE YOUR BLESSING IS READY WAITING, YOU ARE ONLY BEING TRAINED TO HANDLE IT.

  1. Hmmm. From a very poor home at Mbaise, I came to Lagos January, 1998 after secondary school. I came because I heard that Lagos is the green pasture I longed for. My village friend tricked me to Idumota. Unknown to me, I was going to live under the bridge at Ojoba, Isale Eko for years. The testimony is long and heavy but the conclusion of the matter is that I encountered God under the bridge, gave my life to Christ and was enboldened to write GCE and jamb with lesson or classes. Though I hawked every conceivable thing until I looked older than my age, I graduated from Uniben with Diploma and degree. I am today a notable litigation lawyer and a preacher of new creation realities. I relate with the testimony of my brother Frank. He is a blessing in no small measure. He gives me everything I want in gospel music.

    God bless you Man of God.

  2. God is faithful! Whatever pain we go through is a stepping stone to our higher heights in life. When we give up and run away from the process, we give up the rewards that comes from waiting faithfully. God bless u man of God! I’m encouraged.
