Renowned Ghanaian gospel musician, Joe Mettle, has recounted his journey to stardom, indicating moments when people completely discouraged him.
Joe Mettle revealed this about himself with popular media personality, Naa Ashorkor, on Story Time, a segment on Between Hours, which is a programme she started at Asaase Radio 99.5 FM.
According to Joe Mettle, he started from a very humble background and had several people try to talk him out of his music career although he was sure God had called him.
The singer recalled a moment when he was invited by a colleague to a church only for the officiating minister to see him and ask, "Do you think we are joking here?"
Other people said to Mettle that he was never going to make it in music and should find something 'better' to do with his life.
Yet without giving up, Joe Mettle has now risen to become one of the most celebrated gospel music stars on the continent of Africa.
