Music diva, Tiwa Savage, the chairman of oil conglomerate, Seplat Nigeria, Dr. Bryan A.B.C Ojiako and film maker, Hilda Obah were among dignitaries that graced the music album launch of Reverend Father Albert Ovie Ofere’s, ‘Hold On’,  penultimate Sunday.


The ceremony of selected guests took place at the Mercy Hall of the Catholic Church of Divine Mercy, Lekki 1 in Lagos, Nigeria.

The album contains tracks such as ‘I Love to Sing, God Dey My Side, Onye Oma and He Has Promised.


Father Ofere, who was the founding priest of the church at Lekki, patronised by the rich, had previously released two albums, namely Onye Oma and God Dey My Side. He was once the Priest in charge of the general parishes of Nigerians in London. He is now the head of his own parish in south London.

He started his musical career in Warri, Delta State as a reverend Father. The Divine Mercy parish is inundated with moneybags, the likes of Dr Orjiako, Tiwa Savage and one of the wives of Glo Mobile network’s founder, Mike Adenuga.


However, the chairperson of the occasion (unnamed), who is also a member of the church, donated the sum of five million Naira (N5m) during the unveiling ceremony.

In an interview with the magazine’s Emmanuel Omene-Johnson, Father Ofere said, “I do music as a means of passing messages to the household of God. None should wonder why a Reverend father would be into music. They should understand that all reverend fathers are singers. They sing always during the homilies. So, my foray into the music industry is not strange. It betters my preaching of the gospel. Those that are not in the church with me, mostly people that understand the language of music more, would be touched by my songs and give their lives to God, or where they are already in the fold, have praise sessions with God.”

He said that the Vatican City must be aware of my musical career and that he doesn’t feel they would go against his signing as part of his priesthood duties.


“They, the church hierarchy in Rome would have no problem with my music side of life. They would know it is part of the calling, and that it definitely helps me in the preaching of the gospel of Christ Jesus, “he added.

On the flip-side, Father Ofere laughed over a suggestion that his handsome look might be a distraction to his popery office.


In his words, “My call to duty has been successful due to the grace of God. He is the one that has helped me in doing my job. Women are no problem to my calling”
