A catholic priest in Nigeria thrilled many on Friday as he debuted in the music world.

Reverend Albert Owie Ofere of the Diocese of Warri, Delta state, released an Afro pop and gospel album, to further spread the gospel in the Catholic faith.

The six-track album, titled ‘Every Day of My Life’, contains songs like Oghene Me Do, When I Think, Jesus Lamb of God, God Dey My Side, Where Were You and God You Are Good.

Speaking in an interview, Father Ofere said: “I love singing and listening to music”, adding “while working in the UK as the Chaplain to the Nigerian Catholics in England and Wales, my love for music developed even more. I like to sing, music is part of the family, it’s always been in the genes.”
