- Gospel musician, Joe Mettle, has revealed the reason behind his facial marks
- According to him, the marks have nothing to do with his tribe
- He explained that they resulted from attempts to get him cured of sicknesses during his childhood
Renowned Ghanaian Gospel musician, Joseph Oscar Nii Armah Mettle, better known as Joe Mettle, has finally opened up on the story behind his facial marks.
In a report by Zionfelix.net, the music artiste explained that his tribe has nothing to do with the marks on his face.
According to him, his parents sent him to a number of shrines during his childhood.
This, he explained, was because he nearly lost his life when he was a child, and his parents tried all means possible to help him regain his health.
Joe Mettle, who won the topmost award at the 2017 Edition of the Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA), stated that his parents believed visits to secret places would save him, but nothing came out of it.
He further stated that the priests they called on were not content when they gave him the first mark so they marked his other cheek, believing he would be healed.
Joe Mettle continued by saying that all such efforts yielded no results till he encountered God at the age of 4.
The music artiste went on to say that he has never been seriously sick, since then, as God raised His hands to save him.
