Everglad is the stage name of Nkiruka Gladys Ferdinand-Mbah, a new gospel sensation whose mission is to use her voice to draw men to God.
Her debut album titled On Heaven’s Wings is a ten tracker loaded to the hilt with amazing stuff in terms of the sheer variety and quality of songs it contains. Everglad is distinguished by an uncommon vocal power that you just cannot resist. Still more, the resourceful use of language stands her out, as evidenced in her appropriation of English, Igbo, and Yoruba in several tracks. This invests the work with a universality that will appeal to a broad section of the listening public.
A graduate of Philosophy from the University of Lagos, Everglad hails from Amuzi in Ahiazu Mbaise in Imo State. Married to a university lecturer, Dr Ferdinand Mbah from Isiala Mbano also in Imo State, Everglad started her musical adventure way back in her childhood as a child chorister prodigy. She was a key member of the famous St. Agnes Catholic choir in Maryland Lagos, and currently sings in the choir of the Catholic Church of the Holy Spirit, Omole Phase 1, Ojodu, Ikeja, Lagos.
She has performed at various times at the Muson Centre both as a soloist and as a member of a group. Everglad’s enthralling voice can be clearly heard on the soundtrack to Tchidi Chikere’s Betrayal, even if for some inexplicable reasons she was not credited. That work was done several years ago as a young school leaver. It was also at this stage of her life that the young Nkiruka famously appeared on the then popular talk show hosted by the delectable Funmi Iyanda of NTA 2 Channel 5.
Gifted with an incredibly silky and powerful voice, Everglad sings in a manner that reaches the soul and evokes passion. Jesu Joba and Chinecherem are two singles being released to whet the appetite for the full course meal soon to be served.
