Gospel Musician, Patience Nyarko has expressed frustration at the seeming attention given to colleague Joe Mettle over other gospel musicians in the country.
According to the Obi Nyanime singer, the once VGMA Artiste of the Year winner is no where the hype he has enjoyed.
She says that Joe Mettle’s song are mainly hymnals sang in the Pentecost and Methodist church, thus, his career will end if these churches place a ban on the commercialization of their songs.
“Joe Mettle is not up to the hype you are giving him.
How many English songs has Joe Mettle composed in this country?
Let the Church of Pentecost and Methodist come out with a directive that no musician should sing their songs, I tell you he will fall,”
she said on Onua TV on Saturday, May 16.
Patience Nyarko believes that Ghanaians are giving Joe Mettle more recognition because he is fluent in English.
“Look at musicians writing their own songs. Look at NACEE, Diana Hamilton, Joyce Blessing and others. You don’t respect us because we don’t sing in English,” she claimed.
