Days after defending Patience Nyarko against internet trolls for saying Joe Mettle wasn’t the best, Gospel musician Noble Nketiah has made a U-turn saying that, Joe Mettle is the only Gospel musician who can put Ghana on the international market.
Speaking in an interview, Noble Nketiah admitted that, Joe Mettle has done a lot in the Gospel music industry and is the only person who can reach the international standards.
He said:“It is a fact. Yes, it is true. In terms of streams and all that, currently, he is the artiste with most streams across the world so that’s a fact. Not per song; when you talk about collective tracks, Joe Mettle is ahead”.
Noble went ahead to say that, he started appreciating hymns after Joe Mettle did justice to it and hence Patience Nyarko’s argument is baseless.
“Do you candidly think that if people do not appreciate what he does, he will do what he is doing? There is a song he did, it’s one of the hymns; I never appreciated that hymn until he did that song. What it means is that, he’s renewed the song for me and as an individual, it’s blessing me. If what he’s doing is good, if it’s a good content, it doesn’t matter if it’s a hymn or not. If what he’s doing is getting him the recognition, who am I to say what he’s doing is wrong?”
In his final statement, Noble Nketiah however advised his colleagues to stay united to promote the word of God through their songs.
