Veteran Ghanaian Journalist, Kwesi Pratt Jnr has described award-winning Ghanaian gospel musician, Joe Mettle as a man with humility and incredible honest heart.
According to him, he has pleasantly surprised at the musician level of honesty, adding that, his virtue must be emulated by all young Ghanaians.
Joe Mettle who picked up three awards at the just-ended 2018 VGMAs has revealed that one of his competitors, Patience Nyarko’s song was more deserving of the ‘Gospel Song of the Year’ compared to his worship song, ‘Bo Noo Ni’ which was less popular.
To him, Patience Nyarko’s hit song, ‘Obi Nyane Me’ was far popular than his worship song which featured Luigi Maclean, but explained that he won that category because his numerous fans voted him.
However, commenting on the issue on Peace FM, the Managing Editor of the Insight Newspaper, Kwesi Pratt described Joe Mettle as unique and must be commended for his sincerity.
“I’ve seen it widely reported in the Newspapers that Joe Mettle has admitted that Patience Nyarko’s song was more popular than his and that song should have won the award. I’ve never heard such sincerity in my life. He’s acknowledged that someone else was more deserving of the award," he said.
Kwesi Pratt also added that, "His sincerity is incredible, I don’t know him but what he’s done is worth commending, his humility has stunned me. He’s really earned my respect, he’s indeed unique".
