Contemporary gospel artiste, Joseph Oscar Mettle, known by his stage name as Joe Mettle has disclosed how much he takes per a gig. He has been in the music industry for the past five(5) years way back with the late Danny Nettey.
Speaking to Rainbow Radio in Accra over the weekend, the multiple award-winning acts stated that he takes between Gh¢10,000.00 and Gh¢20,000.00 for a gig but the price varies based on the type of gig(program) I’m called to minister.
He added, mostly it depends on the particular gig I’m called to play.
For instance, when it’s a Church program, I don’t take my official charge and sometimes I even play for free when it comes to Church programs.
Joe Mettle responding to how much he takes per a gig added, when it comes to shows that have sponsors and more, he doesn’t joke with his charge at all,
“But when it’s a show that has great sponsors on it, I take my full rate, and that involves settling my bandsmen, our outfits and more.”
No doubt, since playing at the 2016 VGMAs, Joe Mettle has become the icing on the cake in Ghana gospel music. This year is his season; more grace on his elbow.
