History was made last night at the 2017 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards when a gospel musician, Joe Mettle won the over all award for ‘Artist of The Year’ beating stiff competition from his challengers.
Since the inception of the award show, the bragging right for who reigns as the king of Ghana music always goes to musicians in the high-life, hip-life and others but never has a gospel musician pull a surprise like Minister Joe did last night.
He dedicated the award to all Gospel Musician across the country who kept believing that a day like this will come, and it has come, he also mentioned his mentor who helped nurtured his talent to perfection, the late Danny Nartey.
He called on all Christians to rally behind the new journey into elevation of gospel music from Ghana on the global stage.
Watch video of when he walked on stage to pick the award as the artist of the year 2017:
