Joe Mettle finally breaks the jinx to win the Artiste of the year



Though gospel artistes have managed to get as many nominations as their secular colleagues over the years, they have still not been able to clinch the topmost award at the Ghana Music Awards since its inception some 17 years ago.

It nearly fell to Kwaku Gyasi in 2007 but he was upstaged by King Ayisoba with his hugely popular ‘I Want To See My Father’ song.

In 2008, Ohemaa Mercy was tipped to walk away with the flagship award but Kwaw Kese denied her the title.
This year, the mantle has fallen on Joe Mettle to break the jinx with two of his colleagues—Nacee and Sonnie Badu calling on members of the gospel fraternity to rally behind him to wrestle the title from the other competitors.

Joe Mettle who was contending for the Artist of the Year Award with MzVee, Medikal, Sarkodie, Stonebwoy, E. L. after the event which went down on Saturday the 8th of April 2017 saw Joe Mettle emerge as Artist of the Year .
