Joe Mettle makes history at VGMA 2017
Since its inception, no gospel musician has won the Artiste of the Year at the Ghana Music Awards.
Minister Joe Mettle has, however, changed this narrative as he won the prestigious award last night at the Accra International Conference Centre.
Prior to the event, he stated that he was hopeful that he would beat Medikal, Stonebwoy, MzVee, Sarkodie and EL to win the award.
“By God’s grace, I have had people, some of whom I don’t even know, campaign for votes for me. We have done our best, it’s left with the academy and the board to decide but I’m 100% hopeful of winning,” he said.
Joe Mettle also went home with the Gospel Artiste of the Year and the Male Vocalist of the Year awards.
