Ghana’s current biggest gospel music export, Joe Mettle has represented Ghana on the world stage at the Stellar Awards held at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, USA. The Stellar Awards is the biggest celebration that recognizes and honors gospel music in the world.
Joe Mettle was named as an artist with an International Sound among artists from England, Trinidad, Japan, South Africa and France. The coveted International Sound Stage presented by Zoe Records, is a showcase of top gospel artists from around the world and gives the artists the Stellar Awards experience.
Joe was spotted on the red carpet in a stunning Ghanaian outfit and shoes all made by Ghanaian fashion entrepreneurs; making a statement not just for Ghanaian music but also pushing Ghana as a brand on the world stage. The 32nd annual edition of the Stellars was hosted by Erica Campbell and saw performances from Kirk Franklin, Travis Green, Fred Hammond Shirley Ceaser, Tamela Mann, and Jonathan Butler among many other big names.
Many Ghanaians have tipped him to win the Artiste of the year as well as the Gospel Artiste of the year awards at the Vodafone Ghana Music awards which comes off in a few weeks. In the history of the scheme, no gospel musician has ever won the top award but this year Joe Mettle stands a likely chance to make history.
Joe has recently revealed that he will release a new single ahead of the Easter celebrations. The song, “Wadi Nkunim” speaks of Christ’s victory on the cross and what it means to humanity and the Christian walk.
